Having visited the main attractions in Granada we looked for something to kill some time and decided on a walk down to this convent. A 10 mins walk from the middle of town the outside of the convent is fairly standard - fairly reserved exterior. The small ticketing room was staffed by a lady who was possibly best described as...

Not many people speak of this place. It looked a sizeable building on the map, and was within walking distance of our hotel, so off we went. It´s spacious atmosphere and cleanliness was striking, so well restored it could have been the original. The outstanding feature is the Chapel, it has to be seen to be appreciated, certainly on par... More

An interesting place to visit if you go to Granada. An example of monastic architecture, although a bit neglected. Worth an hour or two.

The elaborate decoration of this monastery is simply stunning! I was amazed by the detailed sculptures and painting. Although, I didn't expect 4 Euros admission fee, it was worth visiting indeed!

A special place in the centre of Granada. A very quiete monastery but with rich art work inside the main chapel.

This is a peaceful spot near the University Social Science faculty. It's not ornate, but that's part of its attraction. One caveat is that like most monuments/sites, open in the morning around 10.30, it is closed in the afternoon until 16.30 hrs

This place is simply awe-inspiring. Easy to miss en route, you must visit this seemingly simple, almost commonplace building which hides some of the most amazing art work

Do not miss this gorgeous example of a Gothic Monastery with Renaissance additions/alterations. The art works inside the main chapel are mesmerising. Cloisters are classic example of their kind, the garden of which is planted with orange trees. This is still operational with nuns still residing and worshipping there.

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.
