About Granada in Nicaragua
Bright colors and violent history
The city is famous for being captured by many pirates. The most famous of who was William Walker who set up residence in Granada and attempted to become the ruler of all of Central America. Walker set Granada ablaze before making his escape, destroying most of the ancient city and leaving only the famous words “Granada Was Here”
Granada is at once both the oldest city on the continent and the most developed tourist destination in Nicaragua. The city is famous for its classic colonial architecture and postcard cathedrals.
Today Granada has an approximate population of 116,000 making it Nicaragua’s fourth largest city.
Granada is a warm city year round with a climate very similar to Managua. Granada has experienced a real estate boom similar to other tourist destinations throughout Nicaragua
Some consider this “colonial jewel” to be the future of Nicaraguan tourism, the vanguard of what could be; true, if one is holding up Antigua, Guatemala as the archetype. Most agree that the city’s charm will never be taken over; many of the distinctive buildings are private homes of well-off, proud Nicaraguans who wouldn’t think of giving up their piece of Granada. And there is a reason for Granada’s recent boom.
It is a fascinating city – full of bright colors, violent history, lake breezes, and the sounds of horse-drawn carriages.
