Beautiful Cathedral, just very large. The pieces of art as well as the organs on display are incredible. To me is so big that it loses its personal touch. If your in Granada you need to come and marvel of what is inside, just incredible. At one point, this was the 4 th largest Cathedral. Come and see it for... More

Spain is full of Amazing Cathedrals. Perhaps this may not be the finest, but its certainly worth a visit. Its not as rich and laden with the art of some of its more famous cousins. But that may be one of its charms. A Spiritual Space of quiet and reflection. The Ambulatory nests some truly Spiritual works of art.

The Granada Cathedral is filled with light, and has an open floorplan that is very spacious. Unlike the Seville Cathedral, which is equally huge, but dark and foreboding, the Granada Cathedral opens you up to the majesty of the divine. Filled with amazing art; the architecture is amazing. A helpful audio guide is included with the 5 euro admission fee.... More

Cathedral is apparently the largest in europe. The internal cathedral is Beautiful white marble and a impressive choir area. For those who like historical buildings this is worth a walk around in the cool environment. Impressive main dome ceiling.

Amazing building - well worth the EUR5 entrance fee as for that you get an audio guide explaining all about the building.

This is lovely interesting cathedral with lots of history and well worth the small fee to enter. Take your time and follow the audio tour that's included in the entrance fee.

You will pay 10euro for entrance but nothing so exciting. Very similar to next Royal Chapel (Capilla Real), which is free.

We decided to visit the Cathedral to get away from the heat. We ended up doing the whole audio-guide thing and the kids followed very well. Very nice Cathedral but not as impressive as the one in Zaragoza.

It's huge and cost 5.40 euros to visit that includes an audio handset. We really enjoyed the cathedral apart from a break from the heat of the day, it's very interesting and has a highly decorative main alter with many works of art. The proportions of this building are amazing it's well worth going inside.

Make sure you know the timing for masses. We were not allowed past the roped in area although we were dressed for mass. We did not have a religious experience and I was sad.
