Monasterio de la Cartuja it's one of the most magnificent buildings you can visit in Grenade, and overall in Spain! The ceilings are absolutely breathtaking. The monastery and the church were empty of visitors which can be explained by the Alhambra 'competition', nevertheless no one can be disappointed when visiting this monument.

Completely taken aback by this astonishing gem. It's just a short walk from the town centre, 30 minutes or 5 in a taxi. Yet hardly anyone goes there and certainly very few non Spanish visitors. Yet it is absolutely gorgeous inside - a wonder of baroque art. The strange paintings in the refectory also have a strong yet tragic connection to the equally delightful Charter House in London. Highly recommended for a visit.

This Monastery is amazing. From the outside it looks lie nothing much. You enter and it is all peaceful and tranquil. There are fantastic paintings displayed in one hall. then you enter the church..... Make sure you have plenty of room on your camera. There was so much to see.

I was feeling like we were templed out, the town offers so many grand sites, but on our last day we decided to walk up here as it was reasonably close to our hotel. I'm so pleased we did. To be honest the details, craftmenship and materials are overwhelming. I truly did not want to leave. You will marvel at this amazing work of art.

Slightly outside the main drag - a good 30-40 mins walk from the Plaza Real but worth the effort. The church inside the Monastery is simply amazing.
