Granada is situated on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. It has many Spanish colonial landmarks, like the Guadalupe Church featured above, that have survived repeated pirate invasions. The city’s main plaza, Central Park, is dominated by the colorful, neoclassical facade of the Cathedral of Granada, originally dating to 1583.
Granada’s Cemetry is apparently the oldest in Central America. There are many lavish and extravagant tombs with doors leading to the after life. Judging by the extravagance of some of the tombs, the wealthy were thinking they good possibly buy their way into the pearly gates!
It is the final resting place of six Nicaraguan presidents including the first official president Fruto Chamorro. This is the mausoleum and their resting place
