When you enter the place a peacefull silence already surrounds you. Walking through the corridors outside with the small orange trees you enter an amazing work of art.

It is worth going to this monastery to see an impressive altar richly decorated, it is also worth noting the side aisles and coping.

St. Jerome Monastery is certainly worth a visit if you re in Granada. The exterior is rather plain and uninteresting but it belies all of the visual treasures that one finds inside the monastery.

Not wanting to reveal the surprise just telling you, you must go and visit this monastery, most probably it will take you sometime to understand why but be patient.

The street-facing wall belies the grand interior of the church. When one first enters the pretty cloister, one cannot imagine the grandeur that will await in the church. Today the place house nuns, which have their own cloistered section (not accessible to the public).

We enjoyed our visit to this monastery. Not hugely special, but several interesting bits to see and not too far from centre of town.

We went to this monument because it was included in the Granada Card and it is a hidden gem. The place is very peaceful and quite, and the church is stunning.

Wonderful cloisters with many austere rooms such as refectories from them, finally leading to the large and impressive church.

For the monastery there is no need to book any tickets. Just walk to the place and go in. It was very quiet there. It is on teh Granada card but you can just pay for one entry like most special churches. It is really worth a... More

Not that I was aware of, I didn't see any type of tourist accommodation inside the monastery.
