When eventually catholics kings conquered Granada too, they wanted the whole world to know they did and the Cathedral was built with that intention. Obviously it's the former mosque.
All around the Cathedral you'll meet a lot of gipsy fortune teller ladies trying to gain some money.
This is the first purely Renaissance Cathedral in Spain (built in the XV century).
In front of the Cathedral you’ll find the Royal Chapel, with the Catholic Monarchs Graves. In the Royal Chapel you can visit the Queen Isabel art collection (great Jewels and Flemish and German masterpieces).
You can see the chapel in the front, and several antiquities tracing the history of Granada's reconquista.
I must admit that this is not the most beautiful cathedral in Spain, but it still is quite impresive!
This is probably more impressive than the outside, everything looks like white and gold... quite different to the rest of Spanish cathedrals.
Granada has a cathedral on a grand scale, dripping in gold from the new world. In a small chapel off the main cathedral, Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand are buried.
Down the side of the cathedral you'll find some stalls selling spices and herbs promising every kind of health benefit!
It is massive. I love old Catholic churchs for all their ornate qualities, it has a museum associated with it that is also worthwhile
No big city without a cathedral... Had no time to go in, because I had to go home the next day. Looked nice though...
