Not inhabited since 1835, the monastery is preserved beautifully as if the monks have just left it. Priceless works of art, gold leaf carvings, and ornately engraved wood doors will delight the art lover and historian.

It might be overshadowed by more featured and more popular visiting places in town, but if you spend in Granada more than one day, take your time to go there and see this example of the splendid Spanish church architecture. A great experience, indeed!

It's located on the north part of Granada. Enough collection of paintings of the inquisition. The church is fulled decorated with ornaments and gold colour. Some doors are colorful decorated. The entrance costs € 5,00 with audio tour. It worths visit

You can park outside for free and pay at the door (just 4 euros each). It is simply breathtaking! Don't miss it!
