I enjoyed my visit to this monastery. It’s quiet and tranquil and the church is very impressive and different from others.

Worth visiting. The outside looks quite austere but the inside is really adorned (frescoes, plaster work...). I have never seen anyhting like it before. The audioguide was interesting in parts but we found it quite boring in others. Towards the end, we half listened to...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.

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