It's hard to describe the visual aspect: impressive, magnificent etc. Don't recall if the audio guide was included in the price but it's worth it, especially with children.

My wife and I stayed in Granada near the train station and had some time in the morning before our afternoon ticket to the Alhambra. I checked out nearby locations and saw the larger circle for this church. Figured it was worth the walk after reading some reviews. It is worth the walk! 4euros for a ticket with audio guide...

The basillica looks deceivingly plain from the outside, however, from the moment you enter the baroque architecture is stunning. Personally, I prefer the basillica to the cathedral and the free audio guide provided is an added bonus.

Quite an impressive cathedral and a must see when in Granada. It does not seem as big from the outside but was quite immense when inside the cathedral.

For the people who enjoy baroque art, this is a good example, with lots of golden pieces. It is worth a visit.

This is not a big church, but there is more gold all around than in Cathedrals 10 times larger. Was lucky to have the place to myself for the first 10 minutes of it opening, which was perhaps just as well as I think I just had a Hugh silly grin on my face for most of my time in... More

It cost 4 € per person and gave us an audio device. I took lots of pictures so I didn't listen much. Lots of stairs up and then down to leave. So it might be a challenge if you have walking problems.

This place is really amazing.....everything that has been said about it ..is true. The silver and gold has to be seen. You need to take the audio phones as it does explain everything about this gorgeous place. We think the best place we went to in Granada.

Didnt dislike anything, well except the representation of the Devil on the statue of Michael the Archangel. loved all the putti (little cherub or sometimes translated as chubby children) the religious iconography and the church itself.

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
