Because of its location on the enormous lake, Granada was often terrorized by pirates and then there was the everlasting feud with the other colonial gem of the country, Léon.

The centre consists of colonial and colourful buildings, and it’s lovely to stroll through the city or take a ride in a horse and carriage. You can get a good impression of the lake by taking a boat along the 360 volcanic islands.

If you’re looking for folklore you have to visit Masaya, with its colourful markets, dances and the best hammocks in town. Close to Granada lies the Mombacho volcano, from which you can see the most stunning views when the weather is clear. Surrounding Granada there are many charming towns, each with their own industry such as furniture, woodwork, bamboo, pottery and sweets.
