Guadalupe Church, Granada
(4.3/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
Visit Guadalupe Church, which was originally built in the 17th-century, and still bears marks from battles that occurred throughout the 19th-century. It was originally built between 1624 and 1626, however, it suffered major damage and was rebuilt throughout its turbulent lifetime. A small set of stairs lead up to the church. The front features three tall wooden doors, two bell towers flanking either side of the main facade, and a central dome located toward the rear of the structure. Head up to one of the bell towers and take in views over the city out toward the sea. With our world travel planner, Granada attractions like Guadalupe Church can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Very beautiful place! Granada in general is well known for it´s colonial architecture. This is a lovely example of it. Half-way from the main square, to the lake shore, it is a small walk from down town. You can find tons of other spots in your way there.
  • Very nice colonial Spanish architecture.
  • Decent church, if you position yourself right you get a good view down calzado towards the parque central.
  • As well nice during the night. They habe instaled some lights.
