This is one of several beautiful old churches that you can visit in Granada. Unfortunately the facades are much nicer than the interiors. Inside they are modern and not very interesting.

We rode a horse carriage around this cathedral. It looks quite amazing from the outside. The driver said it's 1 dollar a person to go up in the bell tower which we could also see from our balcony at the Hotel Spa Granada/Chocolate Mansion. Pretty architecture!!

It is a wonderful church on the calzada on the way to the lake. Quite old and a very rustic church with a wonderful ceiling.

This is an old Catholic Church. It has a bell tower that is a must climb. The tower reno is open and the climb is a bit close but worth the view at the top. Beautiful!! There is a fee only for going to the top of the tower. The tower stairs are not terribly high but they are narrow.... More

The church looks nice. It was not renovated for years. We try to get inside but it was close so I cannot say anything more about it

I went to the 6am mass here with my home stay mom and I loved it! As others have mentioned, the age of this church definitely shows, but considering the poverty in the area, I think the locals have done the best they can with maintaining it. I attend mass every Sunday and enjoy visiting churches in other cities as... More
