A Nice Small Church

We have been to this small church many times and we always enjoy seeing it. Its location by the Plaza Nueva is very good and it is easy to get to.

Our apartment balcony faced this small but charming 16th century church at Plaza Santa Ana (just past Plaza Nueva on the way to the Alhambra.) When we saw a man at a table, selling tickets for 1.50 euros each (for conservation costs), we hurried over. So glad we did as its charming with a Mudejar-Renaissance design, paintings, and several interesting... More

The San Gil y Santa Ana Church in Granada was built in 1501 in place of the mosque of Almanzra. It stands in an attractive square - the Plaza de Santa Ana. Nearby is another beautiful building, the Real Chancillería de Granada. To the north-east is the Carrera del Darro, a street with many interesting buildings and which a little... More

Small church that was built on top of a mosque. It was rather interesting that above the altar there was a small walkway with a railing around it. The wooden ceiling is also of interest. We were there for about 10 to 15 minutes.

I don't think it is open very often as we passed this church a few times at it was never open. The building is nice, and the facade decoration is interesting. There is a tiny little plaza in front of it and information board describing its history

this is a land mark church at the heart of Granada, one more sign of mixed Spanish and Islamic cultures. to me it could be a sign of tolerance but unfortunately its not. it is a church built on a site of a mosque , profoundly i am against building any worship site on the remains of another. GOD as... More

I heard a loud band playing and ran to see what it was all about. The church was having a special celebration on a magical June evening. Church followers were carrying giant tapestries and silver poles. Everyone was dressed in their best outfits and families were hugging each other. A procession traveled along the river. I will share photos. The... More

As it was Sunday when I visited Granada, I was lucky enough to pop in after Mass let out. It is a lovely church right in the heart of the city, on the central square. It was lovely inside though I did not linger too long as people were still praying...

Probably the best thing I can do is refer people to Benny's review below. It's comprehensive. This is a nice little church with an interesting history. It is centrally located and does not take too long to visit. It is also off a nice little open square. Our short visit preceded a local wedding so we had the added bonus... More
