We stopped in to visit this gorgeous and historic church and were amazed. We took no photographs because there were several signs posted to not do so. But the detail inside this church is amazing and we especially appreciated the security reminding everyone to take...More

The church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra is on a small square close to the Palace of Carlos V in the Alhambra complex. It's a nice church with an interesting baroque retablo.

During our guided and walking tour to Alhambra palace in Granada, we also happened to visit this church, though we could no go inside. It is a wonderful historical building and even the out side architecture is so attractive.

While we saw the exterior of this building during our 3 hour guided tour of the Alhambra complex we were not afforded the opportunity to go inside. There is so much to see in the complex that really more than one visit is necessary to...More

The present church was built in what would seem to be a record today: 30 years! Most churches took a couple of hundred years. This one was begun in 1576 but there had been another one before that. A mosque stood on this spot until...More

The church tower was seen from my hotel room. Everywhere you walk in Generalife, you will see this church. After walking around in the Alhambra complex for more than 3 hours, this church is the best place to take a rest for a few minutes....More

Like most buildings in the Alhambra area, it has an overwhelming history.The church was built starting in 1576 and was finished with designs by Ambrosio de Vicó in 1607.

Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra is part of the Alhambra in the middle area and can be visited without an Alhambra ticket. It's mainly plain and whitewashed but the alter is highly decorated and there are a few interesting paintings.

This is not the most important part of the tour. It is a simple, small church as you enter the Alhambra complex. The interior is simple but worth a quick look.

I got an unexpected free afternoon during a business trip and I tried to visit The Alhambra. I was unable to buy a ticket as it was fully booked. I wandered around the hill and I entered this church (nothing special) to discover the extraordinary...More
