  • Atop Mount was built in the 18th century the Abbey in place of sepulture early Christian centuries. From the Abbey you can appreciate the magnificent views of Granada and the Alhambra. The visit is interesting. The Museum includes works of art and books follow one.

  • The Abbey and the caves can be visited only by guided tour. It is only in Spanish. There is no information in English or another language than Spanish. The guides, who speak English, refused to give an explanation in a language other than Spanish.

  • I really enjoyed the visit. Delightful guide who took her time to explain in detail the history of the Abbey. Very lucky to be a small group of just my wife and myself do it was very personal. Really glad I went. The caves were highlight. Will certainly visit again especially to see how visitors' centre progresses.
  • Piecefull monastery with a wonderful view on Granada and the old city. In the evening you have an awesome sunset. You can just hike all the way up here. On certain times you can have a tour in the monastery.
  • Very nice museum!
  • A historical reference to understand the life of the original granada... shame that throughout history those who earn and exaggerate their victories written and used historical references to support their ideas to the detriment of the others... It is part of this site...

  • The truth is an essential visit in Granada place. A beautiful and unique place. The bad is that guided tour (which is the only way to enter) is too hasty (20 minutes) and not allow to properly appreciate this beautiful site.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
