Convento y Iglesa de San Fransisco - Museum Granada - Nicaragua

This fascinating place keeps even the non-Museum person interested. The complex, which dates to the 16th century, is a pleasant place, planted with tall palms in the central courtyard, and is certainly worth an hour of travelers’ time. The rooms offer rudimentary displays about the indigenous traditions (some lack explanations though) and temporary art exhibits, as well as a collection of photos of the city between 1890 and 1940, which accompany a diorama and maps charting the growth of Granada. The most impressive part is the row of 30 meter-high carved figures found on nearby Isla Zapatera
