The church tower was seen from my hotel room. Everywhere you walk in Generalife, you will see this church. After walking around in the Alhambra complex for more than 3 hours, this church is the best place to take a rest for a few minutes....More

Like most buildings in the Alhambra area, it has an overwhelming history.The church was built starting in 1576 and was finished with designs by Ambrosio de Vicó in 1607.

Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra is part of the Alhambra in the middle area and can be visited without an Alhambra ticket. It's mainly plain and whitewashed but the alter is highly decorated and there are a few interesting paintings.

This is not the most important part of the tour. It is a simple, small church as you enter the Alhambra complex. The interior is simple but worth a quick look.

We stopped into this parish church out of curiosity on our way to Charles V’s palace, and we were glad we did. The altarpiece had a wonderful representation of the resurrection, with Jesus springing joyfully from the grave carrying a redeemed world to his father....More

This church is located in between the “Baths of the Mosque” and the “Carlos V Palace”. You have to keep in your mind that this church opens only at 10h00 AM not before, so look to the time left over before you have to visit...More

The Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra is a small but beautiful church and the main altarpiece is quite impressive. We were able to talk to the man in charge of the church and he gave us very good information about the church and...More

I popped into this church beside the Charles V Palace for a quick look while others in my tour group went into a souvenir shop. From the outside, the building doesn't look like a church except for the bell tower. The exterior has no obvious...More

If you're walking by it when visiting the Alhambra, by all means step inside for a few moments. The Baroque altarpiece is pretty. Free entry.
