How incredible is the altar of this church. We spent almost an hour there just watching it. Than we had to leave because of closure time at 13.30 h. Make sure to remember that most churches close between 13h & 17h.

It is very impressive. It is big and richly adorned. The rest of the building is quite plain with a lot of paintings. A quick look around these part is sufficient.

Beautiful structure with incredible architecture. We took our time and walked around the entire place. Make sure NOT to miss the church part that is towards the end. Amazing house of prayer and worship worth every penny to enter

This is another jewel in crown of Granada. It has all the classic features of a monastery with ecclestiacal art on every turn. Right in the heart of the old city near the Cathedral it is well worth the hour spent to see its wonders....More
