Granada Cathedral, Granada
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Meant to be the final resting place of Charles I of Spain, Granada Cathedral is an example of Renaissance architecture that acts as a centerpiece for the city of Granada. In the main chapel are effigies of Isabel and Ferdinand, known as the Catholic Monarchs. Under the elaborate arches and buttresses you'll find El Greco paintings alongside works by Jusepe de Ribera and Alonso Cano. The mishmash of architectural styles and paintings of various periods is no wonder, considering the cathedral took 181 years to build. Put Granada Cathedral and other Granada attractions into our Granada family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Niet de meest imposante kathedraal van Spanje, maar zeker een bezoek waard. Ligt in een aantrekkelijke oude wijk.Not the most impressive cathedral of Spain, but well worth a visit. Is located in an attractive old quarter.show original

Its architecture features the traditional Gothic style at the time for a more sober style, without the Rococo and with the walls painted white. It contains the tombs of the Catholic monarchs Isabella and Ferdinand. Very beautiful the Capilla Real attaches and La Lonja, once intended to trade in the city.show original
A magnificent renaissance example of the opulence of the both the Catholic Church and the Spanish Kings. It's enormous and yet in many ways awful as the Spanish Inquisition was being rolled out. Also see the Inquisition Museum to bring together what was happening in sharp contrast. Both $5. Plenty of Pokémon PokéStops nearby as a bonus.
It's okay, but not very impressive after a tour of all Spain's other cathedrals...being no where near as ornate as the other cathedrals, with a relatively plain central nave. Still worth a visit if you have time, though honestly I would recommend the Monasterio San Jeronimo, also in Granada, over this cathedral. San Jeronimo has some impressive sculptures lining its altar and ceilings.
Amazing. Breath taking Cathedral. The cathedral of light. A must see attraction in Granada. Words will not describe its beauty. Outstanding
Una catedral espectacular. Merece la pena visitarla
Quite imponent building as usual, very white due to the window disposition. It hosts several painting and mini chapels Undoubtedly the best part is the main nave that has a 4000 pieces organ was built in wood by a famous organist maker. The inner part of the original portal previously used to enter is very nice too.
