This is a can't miss among the many gorgeous cathedrals and churches in Granada. It was the first one of the many that we toured, and I think it had some of the most interesting details, especially with the painted ceilings and classic patio/courtyard with orange trees.

Not open continuously so take care, but once in there the monastery church is a gem! Amazing place to just look at all these details. Worth the detour!

A friend recommended we visit here and we were so glad we did. Wander through the rooms around the cloisters surrounding the orchard of orange and lemon trees and finish in the church to view the magnificent altarpiece - my husband nearly missed it! We bought marmalade made by the nuns. The very smart toilets are not marked as such so you probably won't find them without asking the ticket seller!

Beautiful monastery. Beautiful cloisters. Peaceful place. I wish it was not such a gray and misty day. I can imagine it would look this much more magnificent in a brighter day.

This attraction should be higher up the list, as it truly is a magnificent building.
From the attractive facade and pretty courtyard with orange trees, to the ornate majestic altar and sacristy.
You will see it listed as Monasterio de San Jerónimo.
Well worth making a trip to see.
