This is a must see while in Granada.  The splendor of this church is almost beyond comprehension.  To enter, you have to go through the garden gate just to the right of the church's main entrance.  There is a 3 Euro admission that comes with a free audio guide.  From the time that you walk in the WOWs begin.  The...

We climbed the stairs to where the Saints' relics are kept first. The stairway itself is beautiful, painted and tiled with gorgeous scenes. Then you... More

The interior of this church is incredibly ornate. The gilded altar is a site to behold. Definitely a must see when walking around the city. We took a ton of pictures.

This church is amazing in its Baroque extravagance. Every inch seems to be covered with gold, silver, or some kind of artwork. I've never seen anything quite so elaborate. When you step into the main sanctuary it takes your breath away.
