“Disappointing!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you are in to church architecture this may be of interest but the royal chapel of Ferdinand and Isabella is a much better bet if you only have time to do one.

“Overhyped attraction, can be skipped if short on time”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

.... Or if u're suffering europe church/cathedral deja vu :) this was supposed to be second biggest in spain etc etc, and does have a similar size to the seville cathedral. But thats where it ends. Its neither as grand/lavish nor as interesting (just comparing the audio guide story). Its worth the €4 price but can be skipped if short of time! Having seen many of europe's grand churches, we were quite underwhelmed here and were out in 40 min despite having a full day to spend. Of course, if u wont see other churches, then u can see this one!

“Impressive contrast to the alhambra”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

After you visit the Alhambra your visit here will highlight the differences in culture and architecture between Moorish and Spanish, the simplicity in comparison is eye opening.
