Casa Museo Comandante Carlos Fonseca
Iglesia San José
Originally constructed in 1751 and used as a jail for indigenous rebels in the late 1800s, this church was rebuilt in 1917 by Franciscan...
This small-scale coffee growers cooperative represents farmers in La Dalia, Jinotega, San Ramon and Matagalpa and arranges harvest tours...
The 1751 Iglesia Molagüina, in the center of town, is the plainest of the churches but has nice gardens.
A great Matagalpa steam table buffet with all your Nica favorites and excellent frescos . High turnover means it is always fresh.
Lonely Planet review
Commander Carlos Fonseca, the Sandinista equivalent of Malcolm X (read: bespectacled, goateed, intense, highly intelligent and charismatic), grew up desperately poor in this humble adobe with his single mother and four siblings, despite the fact that his father was a coffee magnate. Now it’s a tiny but enthralling museum that follows his evolution as a leader from childhood until his death.
