Monasterio Cartuja, Granada
(3.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Considered one of the most beautiful monasteries in the country and a fine example of Spanish Baroque architecture, Monasterio Cartuja took around 300 years to build. Sculptures and paintings fill its flamboyantly decorated interior, and you can’t miss the dome mural. Notice the way the geometric surfaces echo each other, and think of this as the Christian reply to the Moorish Alhambra. Consider taking the bus to reach this attraction. Note: no photography is allowed. Plan to see Monasterio Cartuja and other attractions that appeal to you using our Granada vacation generator.

  • The chapel is quite unusual and very beautiful, but photos are prohibited and you cannot buy any decent ones to remember it by. Overall, it's interesting, but I would give priority to other religious ...  more »
  • Is a bit outside the Centre of the city of Granada by bus can go up close. There is small inside, as well as a very beautiful gold and amazing things. Great photography is prohibited is very regrettable, but worth a visit if you have time nor wood, so in there is.

  • When I saw it from the outside and especially on the Hill I thought it wasn't nothing that ... instead went inside I had a brainwave for the pomp and architectural beauty

  • A must see in Granada - it's worth walking a bit till its location. Unique marble sacristy and tabernacle in spanish baroque style
  • Yesterday I was visiting, once again, La Cartuja with some friends who are not from here. I was surprised the lack of cleanliness in the Snncta Sanctorum, there is much dust, this belies a work of art of that calibre. would not be possible to arrange things so that this artistic heritage is maintained with the dignity they deserve their rank? There are many people out of work that would make happy this maintenance. Thank you very much for your attention

  • I liked more than the Cathedral, but it is a shame to be so bad care and having so many enclosed rooms.

  • Outside and sober cloister, style XVIII. The Interior of the Church is in a baroque style a bit clumsy that I don't appreciate a lot. Each his taste.

  • Beautiful monastery, but after the monasterio de san jeronimo away in the city, he fell a little bit in it.
