  • Most tourists come here to see the sarcophagi of Isabel and Fernando, as well as Joan and Philip. Our guide knew interesting stories from the Royal House. The "insane" Johanna deserves consideration.

  • I tell my experience by attempting to enter the Royal Chapel. I agree with the comments that you think a pass the price of this visit. If you pay by entering the Cathedral, that same input you should also enter this adjoining room: I don't think it is normal to have to pay again. Aside from the price, that everyone will have their opinion, I prefer the bad ways and ugly detail of the staff of the Royal Chapel. Before going through box office I'm a lap around the room to inform me of this place and I intend to take one of the brochures and what would be my surprise to see the guardian will not let me take this brochure, answering me I have to pay the happy 4 euros to look at it. It is the first time in a tourist site does not allow you take the brochure which is something that you provide on any visit, just go to the tourist office to make them give you but it is logical to pick it on-site. Hallucinate in this situation so I decide not to enter this site. I hope that this is the exception that confirms the rule in the visit of a place which should facilitate its entry, not to prevent the visit.

  • Beautiful Cathedral, but does not support the comparison with that of Toledo (the most beautiful in Spain) and especially not with the Church of San Juan de Dios, Granada, infinitely more beautiful, richer, more Golden, and his altarpiece that opens like an automaton. But hey, down to the foot of the Alhambra, you can take a small break. But this is not a must in Granada.
