Monasterio Cartuja - Review
In this serene and removed monastery, you’ll find yourself wandering around with utter delight and astonishment at the same time. Especially when you visit the church, a wonderful Baroque creation filled with beautiful marble, powerful paintings. The Sancta Sanctorum here is stunning: religious figures surround you in their magnificence from every corner and the tabernacle is made of marble, jasper and porphyry. It’s one of Granada’s lesser-known delights and that’s good for you; there’s almost never a crowd.

Monasterio Cartuja, Granada Reviews
Worth visiting just for the church. Just €5 and not too many other tourists. It's a little out of the way but definitely worth seeing.
Beautiful monastery with huge collection of Renaissance art. Open until 8pm. Very quiet and peaceful at 7pm. Friendly staff at gift shop. 30 minute walk from centre. 15 minutes from Albaicin
This may be the single finest example of Spanish Baroque architecture I have ever seen. The trompe l'oeil retablo in the room next to the refectory is mind blowing in the quality of execution, the ceiling of the church nave is covered with incredible plaster work, and the sancta sanctorum is one of the most beautiful spaces I've ever been able to stand in. As an architect, this building rivals the Alhambra for the title of the best building in Granada. If you are a fan of art and architecture, make sure to give yourself at least a couple of hours in this amazing building.
Beautiful monastery with gothic as well as baroque elements. Especially the church is very impressive. Nice collection of oil paintings. The entrance fee (5€, reduced 3,50€) includes an extensive audio guide.
Just wanted to take a look it was ok it cost €5 each with an audio guide
