“The view of Granada from the top was well worth it”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

It is worth the entrance fee and hike up the tiny twisting stairway to view Granada in all directions. You can see Lake Nicaragua on a clear day. Just hope the bells to ring while you are up there.

“Nice church, walk to the bell tower for views”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Nice church, very well maintained. Pay $1 to walk to the top and view the town from above. Well worth it.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

The best view in Granada! Try going in the late afternoon and the sun filtering through the clouds on the colorful buildings of Granada is beautiful. The church is also very peaceful.

“Best view of Granada!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

It is well worth the short climb up very narrow spiral stairs to the top! You just have to make sure that no one is coming down as you are going up as there is not enough room for that. There is a small fee, about $1 each. The church itself is so beautiful inside. Love the architecture. We spent about an hour there. The outside of the church is very striking as it looks and is so old. A must see if you are in Granada!
