In addition to the attractions listed below, be sure to check out the rest of the city's churches, especially the dark and atmospheric Iglesia Guadalupe on the eastern side of the city, 4 blocks from the Parque Colón on Calle La Calzada. On the other side of town, you'll find Iglesia Xalteva, 5 blocks west of the central plaza on Calle Xalteva. The high, arched walls were built by the Spanish to separate them from the local architecture. Continue west on Xalteva, and you'll reach the town cemetery, an elaborate necrolandia with some grandiose tombs, including a fair attempt at a reproduction of the Magdalena de Paris. On the eastern side of the city, at the end of Calle La Calzada, are the gray shores of Lago Cocibolca. Here, you'll find Granada's version of a waterfront walk, known as Complejo Turístico Cocibolca. Though the lake provides some magnificent panoramic views, the shore is sadly neglected and litter-strewn. You'll pass it on the way to the departure point for tour boats going to Las Isletas.
