They have quite a bit of baroque if that is your thing, and you haven't had your fill of baroque churches. There is a large collection of anti-English propaganda paintings from the Reformation era. I enjoyed the parking lot/forecourt the most because of the very...More

It's located on the north part of Granada. Enough collection of paintings of the inquisition. The church is fulled decorated with ornaments and gold colour. Some doors are colorful decorated. The entrance costs € 5,00 with audio tour. It worths visit

There is much beauty here so take the time to enjoy it. The sculpting is amazing as are the painted ceilings. The walk is not long, or one can take a bus. The audio guide can become a bit tedious however.

We actually walked here from the center of the town. We love walking around (yes, we do get lost) as you can see more of the not-touristy places. So, it's about 25-30 min on foot. This is one of only 4 Carthusian monasteries left in...More

You can park outside for free and pay at the door (just 4 euros each). It is simply breathtaking! Don't miss it!
