Founded in 1524, Granada enjoys the distinction of being the oldest colonial city in the Americas. Granada is a romantic city of colorful colonial homes and neoclassical churches. You can wander around the building stores around Central Park, including the Palacio de Cultura, on the west side. On the north end of the plaza on the right side, you will see a stone portico with lions, the only surviving portion of the original building burnt by the USA fliibuster called William Walker. Today is a cultural place known as Casa de los Tres Mundos. You can visit the oldest church of Central America, the San Francisco church and Convent, which was founded in 1529, and houses the archaeological treasures from Zapatera Island, a primitive art exhibit and historical displays. Walk by Lake Nicaragua for the cool breeze and views. Just off Granada, in the lake, are Las Isletas, made up of more than 350 islands created when the Mombacho volcano erupted 20,000 years ago. You will also find one island with the remains of a fort, El Fuerte San Pablo, built in 1748. On the shore of the lake, we have the imposing Mombacho Volcano, with its thick cloud forest, cool climate, well - marked trails and biological station and wonderful views of Granada and Las Isletas.
