This church, a bit of walking from Granada city centre, has an impressive facade. It is on a residential street and thus does not have the tourist crowd. Unfortunately we did not go inside.

The Basilica is well worth the visit. Do not miss the rather inconspicuous door on the side of the church that lets you into the tombs of the Catholic kings (Ferdinand and Isabella). This one might also require advance booking to ensure entrance. Check online.

The Cathedral is very imposing. Lots of old-fashioned catholic ornaments inside the church. Paintings, gold, statues etc. You can get a good apprecation of the former strength of the catholic church in Spain.

Went to visit on a Sunday afternoon, check for opening times as we had gone earlier in the day and was closed. This is probably the most ornately decorated we have ever come across. A must see. A little out of the old town, but...More

Definitely worth a visit. There is an entry ticket of about 3 euros. The church is grand in the inside, paying for the entry fee is well worth it.

It so happened that we visited on a rainy day in early December 2017. Outside gloom and inside opulence. Don't forget to take the audio tour. It's very descriptive and you don't have to listen to it all while you walk around. It's splendor is...More

Indeed, the entrance fee is rarely ever so justified as it was here. The splendid interior with the rare possibility to climb up to the altar room and upper side rooms make the visit a very special event. Spanish church architecture at its very best!!!

Like every other cathedral in Spain, this displays all the grandeur . There are good souvenir shops around and also restaurants. It takes about an hour and the the shopping and eating and walking around is your choice.

no need to purchase in advance. We found very few queues in Granada even though we read that there would be.
