The cathedral is bright and white with quite understated decor and beautiful light flooding through the high windows. Informative audiotour. Chapel Royal full of history including the lead coffins of the Catholic monarchs.

I have been in many Cathedrals and this might possibly be the most beautiful and amazing one. This rivals the Vatican!

The Cathedral is really worth a visit for the chapels, alter as well as the art and treasury collection.

For € 5,00 you wil be at least one hour busy seeing the blingbling inside this cathedral. It shows how rich the spain was at that time by taking all the gold from the south america. It's very big church with a lot of chapels....More

This is a peaceful haven from the bustle of Granada. There are beautiful paintings and stain glass inside. As well as wonderful sculptures. Definitely pop your head inside the cathedral for a look.

The towering arched interior is quite majestic. The audio guide is helpful although it provides an overload of information. Magnificent altarpiece. The Royal Chapel is the burial place of Isabel and Ferdinand, their massive marble tomb along with that of their daughter Joanna and her...More

Both are very impressive. The Spanish glory. These places are separately charged and entered. The royal chapel is a no photo place. Pretty strange. The cathedral is large, wonderfully decorated and a little bit overwhelming. A good lesson of history.

This is a truly beautifully ornate building which holds the crypts of Ferdinand and Isabella plus Philip the first and his supposedly mad wife. Very worthwhile visiting for people interested in either architecture or history.

Beautiful cathedral and very easy to access. No tickets needed, which makes it all the more accessible.

The cathedral is in the middle of a busy shopping and restaurant area. I did not see any parking lots. Walking is the best way to go. Bus stop is "cathedral" on Grand Via and cathedral is just few steps away. Check for... More
