Wonderful artefects and great history. The place is spectacular. Good commentary giving very detailed descriptions of each section of the basilica. The tabernacle section is particularly atmospheric.

Don't miss the Basilica. The inside is absolutely fantastic. Take the audio guide which is very informative and also visit the museum.

Having travelled to many churches around Europe this really stood apart from the rest. It really is spectacular and we didn't mind paying the 6 euros each for the entrance price. It really is quite captivating and can take your breath away.

This must be one of the most decorated churches in the world, it's dazzling. Mainly gilded wood, but also decorative tiles. It's hard to find an undecorated inch.

no need to purchase in advance. We found very few queues in Granada even though we read that there would be.
