I visited the church and spent some time inside admiring the art work and stone sculptures. I also went up to the tower and saw the most amazing views of Grenada. A must visit especially during sunset.

This old church is in a quiet part of Granada and is quite beautiful. If in Granada, it should be on your list of places to see...especially churches. As well, there are a couple great places to eat very near by.

Many churches in Granada, this one is the biggest and oldest. There are very long offices every day, you can stay to listen to the songs. They put a lot of flowers in front of the statues. The front of the church is black because of the fire that happened 100 years ago.

A quick climb to the top of the bell tower does give you beautiful views of the city. Be prepared for the winding staircase. The cost is either $1 or 25 cordobas. Although we weren't there for the sunset, I'm sure it would be beautiful.

Impressive view of all of the city from the tower. It has also got one of the most beautiful facades in the city of Granada. It only costs a dollar to climb up the tower.
