National Palace of Culture (Palacio Nacional de la Cultura)

1 beoordeling

One of the most impressive neoclassical buildings in Nicaragua, Managua’s National Palace of Culture is home to the National Museum, the National Archives, and the National Library. In the capital’s Plaza de la Revolución, the grand building was commissioned by President Sacasa and was built in 1931.

Home to the Nicaraguan parliament for over 50 years, on the night of August 22, 1978, left-wing Sandinista revolutionaries stormed the National Palace and overthrew the Somoza dictatorship, ending the palace’s role as the seat of the Nicaraguan parliament almost overnight.

Flanked by the Old Cathedral of Managua and the famous Gran Hotel, the National Palace was renovated in 1994. On a visit, discover its palm-lined courtyard and check out the National Museum, which shows temporary art exhibitions and exhibits that range from palaeontological finds to earthquake exhibits.
