A Saint in the Market

I am not sure, but maybe the Archangel
San Rafael, Patron Saint of Atenas &
maybe they added the fish, a pitcher of oil,
and the two geese. Need research!

He looks out over the Atenas Central Market Courtyard.
An enclosed circle of indoor shops or vendors surrounds the courtyard.
Straight ahead behind the big tree and two rows of vendors is the bus station.
The last row of vendors are all places to eat on bar stools. Most called sodas
where you can eat a meal for $2.

Hotel El Convento, León, Nicaragua

Hotel El Convento, León, Nicaragua
My one night in León was in what was one time a convent. The courtyard.

The atmosphere of an old Spanish Colonial
Catholic Convent was evident throughout.

An old prayer altar?

Convent is adjacent to San Francisco Church with this Entrance Sign.
Church is pictured in the church post.

All of the hotels Tours Nicaragua has arranged for me have been excellent in every way. They are the only way I will ever travel in Nicaragua!
