Just note that these are two different places and have two different opening times and entrance fees. The cathedral entrance is at the front and the Royal Chapel entrance is round the side. They are attached but the door is firmly closed and locked. The royal chapel is the burial site of Ferdinand and Isabella. They changed Spain and the... More

The cathedral is really a mix of three different places; the cathedral, the Iglesia del Sagrario and the Royal Chapel - different entrances, different opening hours, two places with separate entrance fees and one for free. The royal chapel has a beautiful altar piece and two massive marble pieces over the king and queen make this a really good visit.... More

A magnificent cathedral whose interior has to be seen to be believed. Hand held language guide handed to you on entry which takes you through the various parts of the building in your own time.

If visiting Granada you must visit this beautiful cathedral. Spectacular to go inside. For €5s you get given a walk around recording of what you are seeing which takes just over an hour but spend longer in there soaking up the beauty of the place. If you've not the time and only have 10 mins then pop into the chapel... More

The Royal Chapel was build between 1506 and 1521 - it is remarkable that so many of this type of building has survived over the centuries. It is a lovely church and is the resting place of the catholic monarchs. I visited in April 2017 and the entrance charge was 5 euros.

The interior was really cold! It was about 70F when we walked in and promptly put on our coats and scarves. We never warmed up! The original design is Moorish and is stunning. As with many of the Spanish cathedrals the Christian decor that has been added is over the top with gold and embellishments. There is a free audio... More

This is a beautiful Chapel and well worth seeing. It is right next to the Cathedral in the centre of Granada. We spent about 30 minutes and really enjoyed it.

We only had time to visit the Royal Chapel (Capilla Real) wherein lie the tombs of Ferdinand and Isabella. One can also then walk down some stairs and view their coffins in the crypt which lie directly below. In addition to the tombs there is also a very impressive range of artwork including several by Dutch Masters. A very interesting... More
