Thread: A Secret tunnel under Managua?

    Default A Secret tunnel under Managua?

    I was doing some research on the National Library of Nicaragua and one of the people that I was interviewing brought me down to the basement level of the Palacio Nacional to look around. Not much doing down there, but there was a few things that caught my eye.

    According to this contact, during the Somoza era's there was a tunnel built that ran from Tiscapa to the Palacio Nacional. The entrance to the tunnel has been sealed up, however there is some evidence that it may have existed, or still does.

    Heres a variety of pictures ranging from an old safe apparently used by Somoza, old junk, some of the burial urns being repaired or awaiting a home, the picture with the chair in front is of the supposed entry point of the tunnel which Somoza would drive through.

    I also saw in the basement some artifacts and cannons from Granada and the fortress on the Rio San Juan.

    I randomely snapped pictures because it was pitch black down there and I could not see anything without the flash.

    I bet Daniel Ortega is preparing this tunnel as his CPC bomb shelter when the **** hits the fan.

    Is that where the Venezuelan generator was headed?

    The direct path that this tunnel would take would pass so many major buildings, I may have to do some exploring of some of these basements.

    Default When will you guys ever learn?

    This is the F$LN Super Collider Tunnel.

    If you look very closely, you will see a sign that says "Shoot this way".

    Then, when you do, you eventually get a bullet up your ass.
    Life's different here ... It's a whole 'nother pace.
