A religious paradox, this construction is conspicuous and classic at the same time. From the monumental main chapel to the spartan refectory, from complex stone vaults to simple wood ceilings, and from the showy pinkish pulpit to the modest memorial stones in the courtyard. Be sure to notice: 1) The black and white murals in the chapel for amazing 3D... More

This place holds the beauty of a true monastery. It is incredibly peaceful, and visiting the different rooms you cannot but feel a little lighter. The church is a baroque masterpiece: there is not a single corner that is not decorated and the entire site emanates old religiousness. NB: the entrance fee is 4 euros and they do not accept...

This place is a must when you go yo Granada. This is a beautiful Convent very well preserved and beaufully built. The visit starts with a walk around the central patio, which is filled with orange trees, then you can visit some of the rooms around it. But the most impressive part of it is definitively the Church. It exquisitely... More

An absolute must, the chapel is outstanding, ornate and detailed. The other areas are sparse but for the few euros to go in the chapel is amazing - DO NOT MISS IT

This was a real gem of a building, and clearly not one which is well known. It was a joy to experience the tranquillity of this place, and to admire its beauty.

The San Jeronimo convent is most certainly worth the walk over there, the decorative art inside the convent church is out of this world... enjoyed this place more than the cathedral of Granada, it is exceptional

I am not sure it is really worth the price paid or reserving to much time/effort for this visit. The main altar hall is really impressive but most of the place is crumbling down and in urgent need of restoration. Few rooms are open for visitation, and not all are interesting. The garden is just basic. There are more great... More

Do not miss this extraordinary Monastery still being used by the Augustine nuns. If you go to only one church in Spain, make it this one. This is a hidden gem that completely took my breath away. Sit in a pew and feast your eyes on the artwork, sculptures, columns and the altar. The Cathedral is a two minute visit,... More
