If you are travelling around Portugal and stopping in to visit many churches and cathedrals then this one does not need to be on your list of must sees. However, on its own it is worth a look and if you go right when it opens at 10 am there were very few visitors and you can have a quick... More

While walking the town on and off the bus/train which is perfect to see all in Granada, found this site. We spoke to someone coming out and after touring around the Convento see why it was recommended. If you like churches this is very good.

This is not on most "must see" lists for Granada but is well worth a visit. Its a short walk from the old city - located in the university district of the the new city - and its on the hop-on/hop-off bus route. Originally a monastery it was heavily damaged by military occupation during the Napoleonic invasion and is now... More

Quiet. Impressive. Breathtaking church interior. Peaceful. Historic. Contemplative. Truly a hidden gem which is not yet discovered by the many tourists in Granada.

A place to visit especialy if you ride a bike. You should go at the afternoon so that you can go down after visiting the place and discover Alhamabra from another side. Granada is a very nice city full of surprises

Rivals the Alhambra for Christian beauty. 4€ charge to get in, beautiful courtyard and citrus trees, tons of Christian art, hidden away from the noise of the city

We did hike up to the convent Charthouse, but found that everything we needed and enjoyed was right her at Covento de San Jeronimo. The chapel and alter are amazing and the rooms are clean and well restored. They really do close in the afternoon, so be sure of the hours when you are visiting.

A masterpiece of baroque art and a must if you like monasteries/churches (along with La Cartuja and the Cathedral). It is very close to the center and you can just go walking and also have lunch in a nice area

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
