Granada Cathedral - Review

Granada is not just home to one of the finest examples of Moorish architecture with the Alhambra; it also has the very first architecture of the Spanish renaissance with the Granada Cathedral. Another interesting fact about the cathedral is that it took a hundred and eighty one years for it to be completed. Guess people were willing to wait much longer back then. But those 181 years resulted in the Granada Cathedral being the unusually beautiful structure it is today. Begun over the site of the city's main mosque with Gothic designs it quickly incorporated the burgeoning Spanish renaissance art into its plans in the mid 16th century. Later, in the 17th century Baroque elements were added, making this cathedral the striking sight it is today. A large cathedral, with a stunning facade and intricate interiors built over a 181 years by multiple famous architects means that this cathedral is steeped in history. So enjoy the architecture and the history lesson, Granada seems to be full of places that offer both!

Granada Cathedral Information

  • The Royal Chapel and Mausoleum (Capilla Real) are located nearby, so you could plan your trip with that in mind.
  • The 4 Euro entrance fee might seem like a lot but it is worth it, even though the cathedral in Seville is far more impressive. And the architectural style is completely different; don't miss this one because another one is better. No two are the same.
  • The audio guide has a tendency to get into specifics and uninteresting trivia, but you always have the option to skip it.
  • There are not too many signs and plaques describing things.
  • The steps leading up to the cathedral gate are steep.
  • Take the audio guide, it will help you understand the long and complicated history of the cathedral.

Granada Cathedral, Granada Reviews

  • Although the cathedral is surrounded by buildings and you can't really get a feel of how impressive it is from the outside, once you enter you will be amazed. I have visited many cathedrals throughout Europe and this one is right there in the top 5 with Notre Dame and St. Peter's Cathedral. I suggest buying a Granada Card since it will give you access to the Cathedral as well as to the Alhambra and other popular attractions. You can easily buy it online before your trip.

  • The cathedral was well worth the €5 entry free considering they give a free audio guide. In fact it would be worth twice that price considering its grandeur. The cathedral is spacious and magnificent yet does not lack detail, it played a massive role in historical architecture as i think it was one of the first Churches to incorporate baroque and this style of renaissance architecture, and inspired many other Churches to follow its design and layout. This architectural style in my opinion is definitely my favourite and a relief from all the gloomy and eerie gothic cathedrals all over the Iberian peninsula. It truly makes you feel at ease and the environment is extremely serene, and the audio guide is very detailed. I easily spent two hours despite running on a tight schedule, would definitely want to visit again in the future if possibled

  • This is 5€ very well spent. You will be handed an audio guide to take in with you. This will explore all that is before you in a very calm and relaxed way.

  • One of the most amazing cathedrals in the WORLD!! Romanesque with incredible huge columns! It’s so beautiful! The altar is magnificent in gold and there are two organs! €5 entry with audio guide. Cannot miss it! Must see this, the royal chapel and Alhambra whilst in Granada!!

  • Fascinating cathedral .. a testimony to the skill and pain of the designers and builders. Built on the Preston of the poor of course .. and this continues today. Football is the only acceptable religion.
