a small but beautiful church

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.

It has to be seen to be believed. The interior is magnificent. The Basilica is so beautiful and the atmosphere is surprisingly peaceful, considering the location.

The Basilica de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in Granada, and perhaps in Spain. Almost every wall surface is covered with a painting or a Baroque design. We were able to see the camarin, the dressing room of the Virgin Mary, and this was wonderful. The parish priest who allowed us to... More

The cathedral is an unusual looking building from the outside, but please go in and explore this amazing church. There are so many beautiful altars and pieces of art- you won't be disappointed. The attached museum is filled with astounding treasures.

My friends and I went and saw this church today and it was insanely beautiful inside. From the outside, it looks like a cool older church right next to regular stores.
