I have seen some churches in my time but this really takes the biscuit. Gothic and more! It is a real feast for the eyes, and you just don't know where to look. The audio guide is free, and whilst I am not normally a fan of them, you will need it! There were few people here, which was nice... More

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...

Like others I saw this church on tripadvisor when researching things to do in Granada. I put it close to the top of my list, and I'm so glad we made time to see it! 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

nicer than any cathedral in Rome except the Vatican. What is amazing is the ability to go in areas usually roped off. Not in major tourist area either. As ornate ad you'll ever see.

I saw this church here on trip advisor and decided I must see it. Now apparently it is high Baroque architecture so technically it should be the 'high' end of the Roman Catholic Faith. Every square inch of every surface is designed to overpower you sense of touch and sight and with lighting heighten these senses. Imagine a service with... 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.
