The Cathedrals of Granada, Nicaragua


The Cathedral is one of the most spectacular buildings in Granada. It dominates Central Park and has a view of Lake Nicaragua to boot.

The original building was destroyed by fire in 1856. I can only imagine what inferno would be responsible to wiping out a whole building of this size. Must have been pretty impressive. Get out the weinies and marshmellows.

She was rebuilt in 1880, renovated again in 1905, and when I walked by a couple days ago she was getting a new coat of paint outside. I like new clothes, too. Makes you feel dressed up and special. Just in time for Christmas.

I walked around inside of The Cathedral and peeked behind the altar. Found something that makes the rumour of the tunnel connecting the cathedrals of Granada even more solid. There is a gated and locked staircase leading underground to who knows where. No one is talking about what is down there, either. I was told not even to ask the priests for access to this area.

The mystery thickens!

Great pic (as usual!). I guess fire was a pretty common thing during the medieval times. I know that most of London burnt down - not once - but twice, and was rebuilt again.
