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.

We walked in by accident, and we were astounded by the interior. I wasn't expecting much, given that the outside is rather non-descript and we knew nothing about the church. But I literally gasped with shock at the detailed beauty of the interior. With so much decoration to behold, we lingered longer than expected and really enjoyed our visit. Read... More

I have the fortune to stay at a hotel near by this church. This is a great Church with some 300 years of history. The inside reveals wonderful Baroque decorations. There is a Chapel of the Virgin Mary decorated by beautiful, ornamented altarpiece. There are also many invaluable paintings and sculptures. Other than Alhambra, Catedral,….in Granada, this is a place... More

An amazing baroque church, it is gorgeous, the acoustics are great, every surface is decorated; even the flowers fit into the decorations. The services are in Spanish, but was easy to follow with the remnants of college Spanish. Worshiping her on Easter Sunday was a never-to-be-forgotten, lovely experience.

The Basilica de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias is one of the most beautiful Baroque churches in Andalusia. Its architect was Juan Luis Ortega and the church was built between 1663 and 1671. The façade has two towers with spires. The Baroque altarpiece is made of jasper and was made in 1760 in the Chrrigueresque style, with plenty of adornment.... More
