Ornate interior

The interior is highly decorated, gilded and quite amazing. We visited it by chance and were glad we'd come.

This place is absolutely beautiful! A must see, very peaceful and just breathtaking. You can sit outside and enjoy the small garden and enjoy the view of the Alhambra then walk inside and enjoy the beautiful artwork of the era and the peaceful feeling of the place.

I was not aware of this attraction prior to our Granada visit, but extremely grateful that we stumbled upon it and decided to go inside. It is compact and amazingly beautiful inside. The history is also interesting. At four Euros a steal in my opinion.

You can go there and sit outside the church to enjoy El Amhambra from distance. If you go inside the church, you can choose to pay extra to get to the bell tower and see the views from less crowded spot.

We really enjoyed this more than the Alhamra - it is absolutely beautiful on the inside!!! We rented those "whisper" gadgets which were super. They worked extremely well. This is just a beautiful place - one of the prettiest that we saw in France, Spain, or Portugal.

This church is not included with the Granada Card, but it was well worth the small entrance fee. It's a baroque church with some really beautiful chapels. You also get to visit some areas up behind the altar which have some really beautiful artifacts. I went on Sunday afternoon and it was very quiet with only a couple of other... More

It's hard to describe the visual aspect: impressive, magnificent etc. Don't recall if the audio guide was included in the price but it's worth it, especially with children.

My wife and I stayed in Granada near the train station and had some time in the morning before our afternoon ticket to the Alhambra. I checked out nearby locations and saw the larger circle for this church. Figured it was worth the walk after reading some reviews. It is worth the walk! 4euros for a ticket with audio guide...
