I was already impressed as I looked around the sanctuary, but I was even more amazed when we were lead upstairs to the relics room behind the main altar.

Very interesting to see. Free audio guide is a plus. Definitely religion taken over the top. You can wait for a tour of the top, every ten minutes or so. Worth the wait. While in Granada you should see this. €4 each to get in. Nice clean bathrooms too. Another plus.

I remember my jaw dropping as soon as I walked into the Basilica. It is worth a visit simply for the grandeur and beauty. I know there are a lot of cathedrals and churches to see in Spain, but if you're going to see one, this is the one to see!!!

Well worth the steep climb for some stunning views of Granada. The Basilica has a guide who takes you through its history. Well worth the visit.

City centre cathedral, easy to find and worth while seeing while in Granada. Magnificent things to see in the interior, and exterior is also worth taking photos.

Don't miss this church...it is gorgeous on the inside, but it is the church that was promised by Isabel when she prayed to God for assistance. Again, great stories & history.
