I hope they're using the entry fees to renovate as so many parts were in need of attention. The gold alter was very beautiful but the rest had a lot to be desired. Very disappointed, would not recommend.

The complexe is not of huge interest but the church is impressive. There are cloisters and chapels to peek in but that’s about it.

We stumbled across the Saint Jerome Monastery while we were out walking one day. It's an absolute hidden gem and definitely worth seeking out. The interior of the monastery is out of this world, and the cloisters are truly stunning.

Off the beaten track, the highlight of this peaceful monastery is the stunningly beautiful church. Well worth 4 Euros.

Not absolutely a must, this monastery has a few interesting rooms with noticeable paintings, and a lovely church which makes the 4 euros fee worth. There is also a nice patio with orange trees. Worth visiting if you have spare 30 minutes in the city.

Lovely monastery to visit if you have enough days in Granada. It does not require a lot of time, but I believe it's worth the visit.

We’ve seen a lot of great cathedrals, churches, museums and other sites but this is one of the best we have encountered on our trip. The monastery is out of the way and has very few visitors. Too bad for them! Come here and you...More
