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.

To be quite honest, we stumbled into this monastery because it was included in our Granada card and we needed to rest our sore feet. Thank God, literally! The overall monastery is a living one and suitably spartan, but the church which come around the...More

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

Not particularly advertised but what a great find. Well worth a morning to see. The church at the end of the visit is superb and not expected

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.

For the monastery there is no need to book any tickets. Just walk to the place and go in. It was very quiet there. It is on teh Granada card but you can just pay for one entry like most special churches. It is really worth a... More

Not that I was aware of, I didn't see any type of tourist accommodation inside the monastery.
