There are no word for this. If you have faith, as my partner does, it will move you to tears... If you don't,like myself, the opulence will render you speechless

This basilica is easy to miss. On a night stroll along with the locals on Carrera de la Virgen we happened to come upon this church during services. Spanish baroque stye churches never cease to amaze me with their over-the-top ornamentation and design. Go if you can.

This is a church that is easy to miss as it doesn't look very grand from the outside - but the inside is gorgeous!!! We are very glad that we saw this!!!

The architecture is of baroque style. It is a small church located in Albaycin. It is worth seeing it.

I had the best time in here. The buildings are so wonderful to visit here. The exterior is nice but the interior is stunning.

As we strolled along the pedestrian path, we passed this church several times. As we walked past one evening, we noticed it was open. Although unassuming from the outside, it was a WOW inside! Very ornate and beautiful church.

The Basilica is an excellent example of Baroque architecture but demands a high price for entry. We glanced and passed.

With the Alhambra taking top billing it is easy to miss this wonderful cathedral. It is ornate, warm, inviting and representative of the riches that represented Spain at this time. It is well worth a visit and a casual stroll by the many nearby cafes after.

Ornate and extensive decor inside this building still actively used for services. Grotto statue of the Virgin Mary next door in the garden too. Outside is very pleasant tree lined pedestrian area leading to a fountain square with good Italian restaurant on right up side street and artisan Ice cream shop on the corner of the square.
