This led to the construction of the New Cathedral known as Cathedral de la Concepción in Managua. The facade and bell tower of the Cathedral looks grand and stunning from afar. It is within the radius of Parque Central, which is the central town square. Around the Old church, there are a lot of important buildings that you would love to visit like you have the Palacio de la Cultura – a museum of culture and art in Nicaragua.
