As a student of Spanish over 50 years ago I heard about the Cartuja and made it a priority after spending a whole day in the Alhambra. To say that this is a jewel of the church is an understatement. The ecclesiastical wonders rival those...More

Although the monetary looks plain from the outside, inside you will find the most amazing plaster work, paintings and fresco art. Took us about an hour to view the monastery. The pictures don't do justice to the art inside so take your time sit and...More

Better view of Granada than plaza san nicholas, if you're up for the hike up the hill (also driveable)

This place for sure is a hidden gem! It's not in the centre of the city but the bus service #8 if going from gran via goes past. No queues no crowds, audio guide is included and in my opinion well done. The artwork here...More

Not inhabited since 1835, the monastery is preserved beautifully as if the monks have just left it. Priceless works of art, gold leaf carvings, and ornately engraved wood doors will delight the art lover and historian.

It might be overshadowed by more featured and more popular visiting places in town, but if you spend in Granada more than one day, take your time to go there and see this example of the splendid Spanish church architecture. A great experience, indeed!

You read that it’s the last gasp of Baroque in Granada, then find a plain, austere church exterior, charming courtyard and evocative if not great paintings in galleries. Then you step into the white baroque church - glorious and awesome! Then into the small space...More

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