A few steps from our Oasis away is the central square, el Parque Central. Nos vemos en la plaza, we see each other on the square. The place which has seen it all. Revolution, executions, liberation, weddings, funerals, thunder speeches, poetry, love texting, it is here where the time passes bye. The horse carriages are waiting for clients. The cars should be removed, as they don’t belong her. This is a sacred place, the heart of Granada, the oldest town of the Americas.
Enjoy a drink in a rocking chair sipping a Mint Julep on the wide veranda of the Hotel Plaza Colón, overlooking Granada's main square. Readers of Gabriel García Márquez will be familiar with the atmosphere here: the crumbling mansions, the rattle of horse-drawn carriages on cobbled streets, the slow tropical afternoons, the flirtatious evening promenade, the impossibly beautiful women, the family dynasties whose histories make the Old Testament seem like a model of brevity, their lives complicated by inappropriate passions.
Colossal studded doors, designed to keep out Englishmen with eye patches, lead through to courtyards of fountains and hanging gardens. Great churches sail like galleons above red rooftops. Nuns ghost around street corners. Old men play guitar on benches. Dark-haired women lean on balustrades. Down every street, open windows allow you to gaze into front rooms with framed Madonnas and ticking clocks, where shirtless men chew cigars and play cards and papery old women sit in rocking chairs.
You think of the New World as new. But Granada, built in 1524, was already old when the Great Fire consumed wooden London and when the first trees were felled by settlers on the muddy island of Manhattan. The Parque Central, the town square, has been its main stage for five centuries and has as many stories as Hampton Court. Henry Morgan piled the town's loot between the two fountains here. William Walker, the Tennessean adventurer and megalomaniac, declared himself here President of Nicaragua in the mid-19th century. In front of the cathedral, where fruit sellers are hawking their iced concoctions, they used to execute criminals, defeated generals and traitors. The mansion on one of the corner of the squares was home to the Chamorro family, which boasts six presidents, a general and a famous assassinated journalist among its number.
In the evenings the whole town comes out to stroll. The central square swells with people exchanging elaborate salutations. In the pedestrianized Calle La Calzada, which runs all the way to the lake, the tables outside cafés and bars begin to fill with customers as the early-evening promenade transforms into a late-evening street party. Acrobats perform for coins, itinerant musicians arrive and people dance across the cobbles with salsa moves of eye-watering sexiness.
You will adore Granada and fantasize about buying yourself a rambling colonial mansion for the price of a garden shed in Europe.
Granada is famous because of its many religious events during Christmas, Eastern and a lot around the Virgin Mary. Almost daily processions pass the picturesque colonial streets of the town. And always with a loud of sound from brass bands and firework, chasing away the spirits. The Poetry festival in February attracts people from all over the world.
