The centre of Managua, Zona Monumental, was almost entirely devastated by 1972’s earthquake and was never rebuilt. The whole area was left to decay and is now mainly used as a zone of monuments and historic locations, empty buildings still reminding of the shadows of the past.
Nevertheless, every visitor should spare some time to walk at the old centre’s streets, wander around the corridors of the empty buildings and discover all the hidden stories reflecting the different faces of Managua.
- The central spot of the region is the Plaza de la Revolución, also known as Plaza de la República. Highlight there is none other than the Old Cathedral of Managua (Antigua Catedral de Managua), a living testimony to Nicaragua’s history. having withstood all catastrophic earthquakes that stroke the city, it stands with the decorations and statues untouched from time.
- South of the Old Cathedral, you can see the Palacio Nacional de la Cultura, now housing the restored National Museum of Nicaragua (Museo Nacional) with extensive pre-Columbian collections of art, ceramics, sculptures and murals.
- Opposite the palace stands the government palace (Casa Presidencial), an astonishingly impressive building President Ortega refuses to use and rather has it serving as a children’s corner!
The most modern building of the region – and of all other regions in the hemisphere - is the New Cathedral of Managua whose cutting-edge architecture never stops impressing visitors! The ceiling of the cathedral is made out of 63 domes, symbolising the 63 catholic churches if Nicaragua, while at the same time providing anti-seismic protection.Managua’s official language is Spanish.
