This church/convent is the oldest building in Granada and has an interesting history, having been burnt to the ground by pirates and rebuilt. Next door, there is a small museum. Exhibits include several rather gruesome crucifixion paintings, a scale model of Granada and some ancient stone statues. It only costs a couple of dollars to enter, so is worthwhile if you have any interest at all in the history of Granada.

Report

Casa Xanadu is located on the south side of this historic, oldest church in Granada. It has a museum which is great for the entire family while the church itself is often selected by Managuan's for their upscale family weddings. From Casa Xanadu you can hear the church bells ringing on Sunday mornings.Many bus tours stop at El Convento and here you are right next door to it!
