An "all day" in Granada (for about 6 hours to be exact), the "most memorable" part of my visit to the town really was the visit to this church and which specifically was not for the church itself but for its "tower views" from the bell chamber or such at the top of its tower (the "only tower" to go up by a spiral staircase for just about a minute until getting to "right below" something like 3 bells in the chamber) from which are: a 360-degree view of the brick roofs of this "pretty flat" town (with mostly just 1-storied buildings), a "wide-horizon" view of Lake Nicaragua to the east with also the beautiful "main cathedral" of this town seen at about halfway, but above all a sight which I would just describe as a "phenomenal one" which is that of the big volcano Volcan Mombacho (kind of towering over this town and yes a "full & clear" view of it at just a relatively short distance out of town!). And also somewhat unique about this church is its outdoor "inner courtyard" (just a pretty small one but with a vertical structure like a monument or such in the middle of it) to get to from the inside which is also actually one for a nice walk around (with some shrines or secondary altars along its 2 lengths, nice-sized sculptures & beautiful stained-glass drawings on some windows). After arriving from Managua by a "collectivo minivan" (for about a 1.5-hour ride from the roadside UCA station or such) right at the town's "main plaza" Parque Central, this church was my 2nd stop at just about a 5-minute walk to the west from the 1st stop which was the Plaza itself (really quite a vibrant one with just plenty of souvenirs vendors, horse-drawn carriages & also the "main cathedral" Catedral de Granada on its east side with just a "great exterior" to admire but not that much inside except some great paintings on the ceiling), and it was the small park at the "lake front" of Lake Nicaragua which was the 3rd & last stop after this church by heading back east to the Plaza followed by about another 15-minute walk further east (with a nice lake view where you can go all the way to the water's edge, a big '(heart) Granada' sign & a statue of the conquistador Cordoba).

A simple church with beautiful carvings and altar. There was no one inside so you had time to sit and meditate quietly. Appreciate it for its Nicaraguan location.

Very crazy spiral staircase to get to the rooftop where you have an amazing view of the city. Scary at times but worth the climb!
