Well worth a visit to this tranquil monastery. Captures the peaceful lifestyle of the inhabitants and the church is beautiful.

Our neighbours raved about this church, so we decided to pay it a visit when we visited Granada. And we weren't disappointed. It may not look particularly special from the outside, but it's jaw-droppingly magnificent inside (more so than the cathedral, we thought). Incredibly ornate...More

This monastery is a bit away from the city centre. It thus does not have the usual tourist crowd. The courtyard is very serene. Unfortunately we did not have time to enter.

Not grand from outside, but once inside it is a different story altogether. There is a entry fee of about 3 euros, but it is worth it. Don't miss.

A must-see for all die-hard church lovers. Old architecture for those who enjoy the taste of history.

This is a can't miss among the many gorgeous cathedrals and churches in Granada. It was the first one of the many that we toured, and I think it had some of the most interesting details, especially with the painted ceilings and classic patio/courtyard with...More

Not open continuously so take care, but once in there the monastery church is a gem! Amazing place to just look at all these details. Worth the detour!
