Founded in 1524, Granada, Nicaragua is a historic city with homes and other buildings hundreds of years old. Colonial homes are known for their red tile roofs and interior courtyards with gardens, fountains, and sometimes even swimming pools.
Many of these structures have been restored in recent years and are now filled with art galleries, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and other businesses. Many, of course, are also homes for local families and an increasing number of foreign residents enjoying Granada’s warm weather, rich culture, low cost of living, and active expat community.
In the video below, International Living’s Jason Holland offers a view of colonial architecture from above. From this vantage point you can see the layout of Granada and several individual restored colonial buildings.
