Grand but without soul. Not a living church. A mausoleum to extremes. I think the Kings built in memory of themselves not God.

Even on entering this historic cathedral you could feel the peace within. It was really busy but I was captivated by its beauty and its history. A stunning building full of beautiful artefacts and its 4 Euro entrance fee was the best money I spent. A must see.

I am not religious, but when I was here they were broadcasting a very special ceremony and it was packed. The speech, albeit in Spanish, was really moving. To see hundreds of people bowed in prayer, or listening and watching with such attention, was very touching. I got right inside the Cathedral and the sun shining through the stained glass... More

The Cathedral, with its beautiful architecture, is definitely a landmark in Granada.When I arrived at the airport, it was the destination I gave the driver. It has stunning facades with a grand altar and many chapels. One of the historical facts linked to the Cathedral is that it is a burial chamber containing many tombs of kings. But for me,... More

The cathedral is amazing it,s huge, I think the largest one I have been in, very interesting the museum inside is a mine of information. The only downside is you have to pay an entrance fee it,s not too expensive about 6 euros.

This huge cathedral is quite amazing as it is so high! There are various chapels and a central altar, all highly decorated in the usual Catholic church style seen in mediterranean countries. The charge is 5Euros and an extra charge if you have an audio guide.

Every time I visit this building I am more impressed. From the interior to the exterior all is elegant and a marvel architecture. Amaizing the paintings about the life of the virgin. Also the organs and its sounds on sunday. It woth a visit.

I, like everyone else, came to Granada for the Alhambra. I turned aside to see this Cathedral, and I am so glad that I did! This gorgeous and HUGE building was a testament to the Christianizing building projects of the Spanish monarchs, but unlike the other large cathedrals, this one was built after the height of Gothic construction, and has...

I'm not familiar with all the great cathedrals of Europe like some of the other reviewers, but this cathedral is an architectural marvel, and I was more impressed by it than the one in Seville. It's certainly worth a visit, as a walk around the exterior does not do it justice.
