Arrived last Sunday during a service. It was an incredible experience and deeply moving. Archtechturally it is wonderful building, as we find with many Cathedrals around the World but is sheer size makes it quite breath-taking.

This Cathedral is huge and incredibly ornate. The stone is almost white inside which gives it a light and airy feel. The decorations are amazing. Must see in Granada.

Entry fee of 5 euros gets you an audioguide. Compact well preserved cathedral with many historically significant items. The level of preservation is notably good. No photos allowed.

The two places are exceptional due to their historical testimony. Take an audio guide, it's very interesting and full of information all over the visit.

One of the nice buildings to visit in Granada. The audio guide gives you lots of information regarding the construction and the inside of the monument. Really nice.

Opens between 10am and 6:30pm Monday to Saturday. Sunday is subject to service timings so probably afternoons only. We ended up going mid afternoon on a Sunday in July.

Hi, As I recall it was only about 5 euro's per adult per person to get into the Cathedral and maybe a bit less for the Royal Chapel but we are over 60, so could have got a reduction. The Royal Chapel is well worth a visit.

Hi We plan to visit both of these during our trip and wondered if there was a combined ticket price rather than paying for two individual admissions.

Response fromCadiz_lover|
No combined. There is a Granada Card that includes other admissions and bus plus Alhambra but no idea if this card offers better value or if you wish to see more.

La Alhambra/Granada: Daytrip from Marbella; Itinerary? (25 Replies)
We will be doing a daytrip from Marbella to Granada on a Sunday at the end of December. We are trying to plan the order of the events of our day. We will not arrive in Granada before noon as we cannot leave Marbella too early in the morning due to a late arrival the night before. Our main focus will be La Alhambra. We would also like to visit the Cathedral and Royal Chapel, as well as eat either lunch or dinner at Las Tinajas. Afternoon timed tickets for Nasrid Palaces (3:00 or 3:30...More

Response fromCadiz_lover|
After your afternoon at the Alhambra (by the way the timed entry slot can vary depending on when you apply - if it is not correct the next time then log out and try again until you are happy) why not drive down to find the hotel Hospes Palacio de los Patos at Solarillo de Gracia, 1 which is just around the corner from the Tinajas restaurant. Have a relaxing evening meal and walk to the Cathedral 7 Royal Chapel after breakfast? Drive back to Marbella at noon.

That sounds pretty reasonable, but just a couple of comments: By the time you've checked in and got out again, you may be struggling to fit the cathedral, royal chapel and dinner in before heading back up to the Alhambra for the night visit. I would leave either the chapel or the cathedral until the following day. I personally prefer the royal chapel, but some people love the cathedral as well. Also, bear in mind that many restaurants don't open until 8:30-9:00 pm, which doesn't leave you...More
