Granada - Iglesia de Xalteva


Back in the city.
The Xalteva Church was built in the colonial era and it got its name from the indigenous people who lived in this area.
However, it was destroyed by an earthquake and rebuilt again between 1895 and 1898.
The last reconstruction was completed in 1921.
I took the picture in the small but beautiful Parque Xalteva at the other side of the street.


In the workshop you can see how someone exhibits his extensive hat collection :)
There are Panama hats (traditional brimmed straw hats), but also others.
BTW, do you know in which country the Panama hats found their origin?
Of course not in the obvious country. The origin is Ecuador.
Just like the French fries also have their origin elsewhere :)


The third picture was taken in the lakeside park.
