We were on our way to the nearby Monastery which turned out to be closed for siesta so we walked a few minutes to the Basilica. 4euros each, which includes an audio guide. Hardly anyone else there, we counted 4 others during our visit. First room is nice but nothing, and I seriously mean this, prepares you for the shock... More

One of the most spectacular Basilicas I have seen. 4 Euro entry fee but well worth it! plus its a great way to get out of the hot sun! to get the full experience it would be good to get an audio guide - however it is beautiful to walk around and admire the sheer size of the building.

A fantastic, breathtakingly ornate church. Churrigueresque, being the formal title. This church is a great contrast to the monastery of San Jeronimo round the corner and you can usefully visit both in a morning. Yes it costs a whole 4 euros. It's worth it!

If you like old and totally ornate churches don't miss this one. The altar is totally covered in gold leaf, statues and paintings all around. You will take an inexpensive self guided tour at your own pace and will be able to appreciate the beauty of this chuch.

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.
