Layout organized to save highlights for last. The chapels around the cloister/courtyard are galleries with art. Of special interest are the series depicting Carthusian monks martyred in England during the Reformation. But the true highlight is the sanctuary and chapels off the church. High Spanish Baroque well worth the short walk to the edge of town. (About a 30 minute... More

El Monasterio de San Jeronimo is a small church/monastery that dates from the 1500s. It's relatively small, and honestly I stumbled upon it by accident. I was very pleasantly surprised, however. From the outside, it appears to be a modest, medieval church, and as you enter the courtyard it's a pleasant getaway from the noise of the street, filled with... More

San Jeronimo has a larger church and tower area than most. It is in good condition in a quiet area of Granada

For 4 EUR or free with the Granada card this is must see! The church is just amazing and the monastery with its orange orchard is nice as well.

Go there, get in the mood, stay a bit and plunge into the gorgeous church. You will never forget the experience.

The monastery is OK, but does not stand out. What does is the church. It is quite enormous for a monastery church and has a great atmosphere and is quite unique.

Visited based on other reviews, and was deeply shocked. The cloisters around orange and lemon trees were lovely, but on entering the main 'church' to find every wall covered in images of saints, bishops and so called religious works was deeply disturbing. As a place or 'worship' how any ones mind could be contemplating the eternal whilst being bombarded by... More

We were advised to visit here by Spanish friends and were very pleased we took their advice. There is a charge of a few euros but it is well worth it. The convent is a calm and spiritual place centred around a green square with cloisters on all sides. It is easy to imagine the inhabitants benefitting from the cool... More

Having visited the main attractions in Granada we looked for something to kill some time and decided on a walk down to this convent. A 10 mins walk from the middle of town the outside of the convent is fairly standard - fairly reserved exterior. The small ticketing room was staffed by a lady who was possibly best described as...

Not many people speak of this place. It looked a sizeable building on the map, and was within walking distance of our hotel, so off we went. It´s spacious atmosphere and cleanliness was striking, so well restored it could have been the original. The outstanding feature is the Chapel, it has to be seen to be appreciated, certainly on par... More
