Just 5km from Chinandega is the ancient indigenous capital of Tezoatega, today called El Viejo. Its church is home of Nicaragua’s patron saint and the venue for the country's biggest national religious event, La Gritería, attended by thousands of pilgrims. If you're not a pilgrim, the church is worth a quick peek if you happen to be passing through.
