The Cathedral is so beautiful, we went inside during a Sunday mass so only a portion was open but we returned later to really appreciate the beauty. Before entering the Cathedral we were approached by 2 gypsies offering us "as a present" with a little rosemary bouquet, it took us by surprise, we should have known better, they grab our... More

It was nice to visit, price was 4 euros for person, photos are not allowed, and the art inside is really special

The Cathedral of Incarnation as the Granada cathedral is known is a superb structure. Built in Neo Gothic style was largely influenced by Spanish Renaissance. It is a fabulous monument and shows the richness of its design and yet fills you with piety.

It was a cold and a wet week for us in Spain, this Cathedral and Royal Chapel are worth your time. This is where la Reina Católica Isabel is buried, she is credited with once and for all uniting Spain and being Christofer Columbus largest benefactor in his quest to find a new route to India and the rest is...

The cathedral is not as interesting as the Chapel with the tombs of Ferdinand and Isabel and Philip the Fair and Juana the Mad- an indelible memory of Granada.

To enter the building you have to pay 5€ and you get an audioguide (for us in german). You get around with the guide and have all necessary informations. The cathedral is beautiful in the inside and impressive to me. There also is a toilet you can use :). I really can recommend to visit it.

After living almost for 6 month in Granada, this is one of the most memorable sites I visited. You will understand why the Catholic Kings decided to be buried here.

Glad we went but not a "must see". The chapel is separate from the cathedral and has continuous lines to go into the crypt to see the actual burial coffins. In the main chapel are very ornate monument burial tributes. Mildly interesting. Isabelle's chosen resting place at the Alhambra is simpler and more to her lifestyle while this monument is... More
