Dark sights in Granada & The Masaya Region
- Sort by:
Used between 1876 and 1922, some of Granada's wealthiest decades, this beautiful cemetery has lots of picturesque mausoleums and tombs, including those of six Nicaraguan presidents. Most people come to see the 1880 Neoclassical stone Capilla de Animas (Chapel of Spirits), a justifiably famous scale replica of the French chapel of the same name.
Close by is another rather mysterious replica, of Notre Dame cathedral. No one knows who built it, as the names have been chiseled away. This is also the starting point for the two-hour walk (or much quicker bike ride) to the back of Laguna de Apoyo.
