A very interesting and beautiful place. As you walk and look, reflect on the history of both Spain and the church over the last 600+ years. Signs of the plague, influential families and the wealth of the church are portrayed in the art and musical instruments. These aspects helped me feel the history I had previously only read about.

What can one say about this Cathedral? Even if you're not a spiritual person, you will feel the grandiose of this place. We went on a special day where they were having a summer musical concert. The acustic and the beauty of this place was really transcendent.

Beautiful cathedral and the access in and around the cathedral was good for wheelchair users (mine is electric) NO wheelchair access to either the shop or the toilets.

Granada was the 3rd city we visited during our 2 weeks trip to Spain. We had already seen the Seville Cathedral so, this felt a little smaller and not as impressive as the Seville Cathedral. We drove into the city and parked the car in one of the many parking garages in the city. The Cathedral was a short 5-7... More

For me cathedrals are primarily pieces of architectural art,and I love to view them internally and externally,and Granadas offering is a fine example of all that can be acheived when the best of everything can be afforded. It is absolutely stunning on every level,but I can't help thinking about the blood,sweat,and tears of the men who built these amazing structures... More

Like many others cathedrals in the South of Spain it was built on the ruins of the central mosque, but its style is very unusual one. The rectangular plan recalls Aya-Sofia and first basilicas, the high white transepts covered with marvellous white stucco as well make the interior spacious and light. Find some time to take a cup of coffee... More

once again, another beautiful cathedral. very ornate, amazing stonework and really pretty building. the area is away from the hustle and bustle and well worth a visit. we did not go inside the building as we are not religious and don't enter places of worship.
