Church bling!

Have never seen a church like it - absolutely and utterly dripping in gold and relics. Really quite a sight and well worth the 3 Euros to get in

Quite possibly the least touristic-but right up there as one of the top things to experience in Granada. I've seen many many churches and Cathedrals but this will amaze even the most jaded, fatigued, over toured burned out sightseer. Excellent self tour (Audio) is comprehensive and included with admission. Do not miss the optional €1 "light" located on the Altar-the... More

We visited today and my husband and I were both completely overwhelmed by this place. Neither of us are particularly religious, well not at all in fact, but my gosh....the first thought in my mind was "Oh my God!"..... As I have said in a few other reviews, we are Australians living in Granada for a year, and after the... More

This small baroque basilica is a jewel with no space left not embellished. The audio guides in various languages provide an excellent description both of the church and of the life of St John of God. We had gone to the museum of St John of God, just by chance, earlier that morning and found doing the two places in... More

I had such a wonderful time. This and the one in Sevilla were absolutely amazing. I would recommend coming and seeing all the beautiful jewels and crowns that are kept in the museums.

This is easily the most beautiful over the top Church I have ever seen. A real feast for the eyes and a wonderful history. It is a monument to 'love and charity'. Entrance was 4 euros and that included an audio machine. Excellent value for money. You can put a euro in a machine and it lights up the alter.... More

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

Very glamorous Jesus and holy Mary statutes. Awesome architecture and interior design, cannot image the extravagant design throughout whole church.
