This Cathedral is situated in the centre of town and dominates the main square. Very impressive from the outside, particularly at sunset - the light is great for photos. The inside is quite European in design and a lovely place to come sit/kneel and reflect for a few moments.

The Cathedral of Granada in Nicaragua (Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral) is a roman catholic church in neoclassical architectural style in the center of Granada (which is located alongside the Lake Nicaragua) and next to central park of the city (Park Colon).
Historically the first church was built in 1525, one year after the foundation of Granada (the first Spanish city in America) and after a lot of events (e.g. burned in 1578, second temple in1751, iron frame in 1916, etc.) the Iglesia Bonita took today’s shape from the year 1972.

Granada’s Cathedral (Catedral de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion) is a very beautiful church (both inside and outside, with nice paintings at the ceiling) and very big (3.615 m2) encompassing three naves and four chapels and dominates the skyline of the city (one of the most prominent building in the city).

Summing up I liked my visit at Granada’s Cathedral in Nicaragua and I think it is a Must visit attraction (also to attend a Mass) in the beautiful city of Granada and certainly I will visit it again if I will be in the area.

Very impressive cathedral that dominates the square. The interior is quite large with lovely arches, some pretty altars, and numerous biblical paintings on the ceilings.

What a wonderful cathedral! I feel it is an absolutely worthy addition to the Catholic faith, as it has a unique and distinct look, not to mention that inside, it is like being in a large church in Rome; just perfect!

The views from the Bell Tower are worth the $1.00 fee and the chance to light a candle in front of a saint (or Jesus/Mary) is more than worth it.

While we were there, a solemn chanting session was taking place and the sound travelled very well, thus the acoustics are superb; there is little to nothing that one can find wrong about the Catedral de Granada!

One of my favorite things we did in Granada was attend mass on Saturday night among the locals. It was a beautiful and truly something special to experience during our stay in Granada. The church is in the center of the city and so upon walking out of mass, you're in the center of a fun Saturday night gathering with children dancing and playing futbol, food vendors, and friends and families enjoying the night.
