  • Although it is within the Cathedral, to enter the Royal Chapel you have to exit and enter another access from the street, paying another entry. If we had to choose... I'm without a doubt with the Royal Chapel. The Cathedral is good but not impressed. The Royal Chapel Yes... but no doubt because I love history and the Catholic monarchs are an essential part of the Spain.

  • They are essential places to visit in Granada, the entries 4 and 5 euros respectively. In the Cathedral there is a special children's e-mail. Beautiful!

  • Visit the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel is a must if you seek culture I. It is an excellent opportunity to learn something more of the taking of Granada, the Catholic monarchs and Al - Andalus. It is true that I have to pay, but it is worth because it is all super well explained.
