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.

You know how you sometimes walk in a door and catch your breath? Then you step farther in and can hardly believe your eyes? This church is that kind of “WOW!” After the Alhambra and the Royal Chapel and Cathedral, this place can be ranked...More

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!

Beautiful monastery. Beautiful cloisters. Peaceful place. I wish it was not such a gray and misty day. I can imagine it would look this much more magnificent in a brighter day.

This attraction should be higher up the list, as it truly is a magnificent building. From the attractive facade and pretty courtyard with orange trees, to the ornate majestic altar and sacristy. You will see it listed as Monasterio de San Jerónimo. Well worth making...More

The monastery may be a little off the beaten track, but it well worth the effort to find. I saw quite a few churches in Spain, but this was far and away the best, with that magnificent altarpiece.

The inside of the church is magnificent. One could stay here for hours just looking at all the details of the altarpiece. I have been in hundreds of churches and this one has to be one of the most splendid I have seen. Do not...More

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
