National Assembly Pedestrian Walk


East of the National Assembly along Av Central is a pedestrian walk with open-air exhibits on Nicaragua's history, featuring everything from historic photos of Sandino to evocative pictures of pre-earthquake Managua. It's a great path to take if you're walking from Barrio Bolonia to the lakefront, especially if you're interested in Nicaragua's political and literary histories.
