Fortaleza La Polvora
La Capilla María Auxiliadora
The gorgeous little church La Capilla María Auxiliadora is worth a look for its beautiful pastel interior.
Iglesia de Xalteva
The dilapidated but attractive 19th-century church that houses La Virgen de la Asunción.
A stylish and sophisticated venue hosting visiting DJs on a regular basis. This seems to be the preferred venue for the visiting A-list...
This attractive restaurant-bar does excellent international cuisine, from Italian lasagna to Indonesian satay, in cool Euro styling.
Fortaleza La Polvora information
Lonely Planet review
Originally called the Fortaleza de Armas when it was constructed in 1748, this lavishly turreted Spanish fortress still has the best view in town, over ancient, water-stained church domes all the way to Lago de Nicaragua. You can also check out a roomful of paintings and a couple of artifacts. It was undergoing renovations at press time.
