Alice, my host at Carmen de Toqueros recommended that I visit San Jeronimo and she, like me, is none too keen on Spanish baroque generally. I had seen too much martyrdom and gold leaf in churches in Latin America but decided to give this convent a try. Alice had described it as quite a simple place and that was true... More

This is very fine example of spanish renaissance and baroque. It was the first monastery built in Granada after the conquest. Church of the monastery is very richly decorated. Main architect was Diego de Siloé. It has also influence from Florence, the other architect from there, Jacopo Torni.

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
