About Granada Cathedral, Granada

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!

  • 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.

  • Take the audio guide, it will help you understand the long and complicated history of the cathedral.

  • The Cathedral of Granada is an absolute “MUST SEE” in the city. It is huge and very beautiful. Occupying a big space between few streets it surprises visitors with variety of architectural styles and decorative elements. Each part of the Cathedral reflects the historical period when it was built. The Cathedral is tightly surrounded by very narrow and cozy streets inviting to wonder around. And this is a best thing to do after admiring the beauty of the Cathedral.

  • Fantastic Cathedral with amazing altarpiece. Great surprise to see a world class collection of paintings including works by Roger van der Weyden and Dieric Bouts which were excellent and a joy to see. Only downside is the audio guide which is a long and monotone drone and it is difficult to work out what the commentator is talking about at anyone time. Otherwise a great place to visit. Brilliant architecture outside too.

  • Not my favourite cathedral but still quite stunning. Full of light inside, beautiful organs and altar. Not at all what you'd expect it to look like from the outside.

  • Had a great time. Firstly 5€ entry is great value and includes audio guide. The Church is very light unlike some Gothic cathedrals which can feel oppressive. The nave is very plain but provides a contrast with the side chapels which are incredibly colourful and full of interest. I found the experience uplifting and would definitely recommend it.

  • Not the most beautiful cathedral in this country but 5 euros with audioguide included is super cheap.
