Parroquia Santa Ana

León & Northwestern Nicaragua

This is Chinandega’s most important church, with a splendid Stations of the Cross, lots of gilt and some Russian Orthodox styling that have earned it the reputation of ‘Best Interior in Town.’ A richer yellow with white trim, it stands watch over the festive Parque Central, crammed full of play equipment, canoodling teenagers and street-food stands. There’s sometimes ballet folklorico and live music in the central kiosk.
