There is no building in Granada that is not worth looking at. The church is not only huge but really beautiful and impressive. Old building that is part of history and a real treasure of Latin America.

Enjoyed the view from the top. Narrow stairway to get to the top. It was worth the climb. You can see 360 degrees as you walk the top. Be careful bell is still active and VERY LOUD when you are on top!

Amazing view of the whole city. Some of the nicest photos you can take of a typical central america colonial town. $1 entrance.

This was a real gem just a short, nice walk away from the hustle bustle of Parque Central. It costs $1 per person to take the narrow stairs to the top, which doesn't take that long. Gorgeous views of colorful Granada in all directions. There's more stairs up, but there was a locked gate. The church itself is beautiful as... More

Only my husband went up because they won't allow kids to go up. Real shame because they really wanted to go up and loved going to the top of the cathedral in Leon. Great views of the city.

Went there for mass on Sunday. 10 am. Really nice. The priest was very engaging and focused a lot on being happy. Kinda hot.

Beautiful place to go up to the roof and see views of the city and volcanoes. Getting up to the top was really cool as well as they have the original circular staircase that is super tiny.
