Amy Adejokun Expert destination Nicaragua

Granada, located on Lake Nicaragua, is probably the most interesting city, for the architecture and Castilian traditions. The Church of La Merced, the Church of Jalteva and the Fortress-Church of San Francisco are the three most representative buildings of that style, survivors of the colonial era.
