An essential monument

The Cathedral of Granada, although it is not as spectacular as other cathedrals in Spain like the one in Burgos, Toledo or León, is an essential monument if you to get to know this beautiful city.

Built a little later than those Gothic cathedrals in Castile, the one in Granada is the best example of Renaissance religious architecture we have in Spain. With the domes, its gilds Baroque´s and the everlasting restoration works (it is always covered with scaffoldings) it is an authentic myth to be able to see all the frames restored, all the altarpieces uncovered, all the doors open...

It seems as if I speak with bitterness; it is actually not the case. I think this cathedral has a special something, maybe because it is surrounded by dozens of craft stands and some beautiful gardens and great tapas bars... Maybe... But it is without a doubt a place to get lost, to sightsee, to think and to meditate in the lively Granada.

The chapel sums up its greatness

Renaissance church. Diego de Siloé found the perfect solution to combine a renaissance chapel to a Gothic appearance. He united the circular floor to the basilica one, which earned him the recognition of the architects at the time. The main chapel sums up the greatness of this building. The dome of the main chapel is decorated with windows of a great beauty, with Alonso Cano's sculptures and paintings. It has three beautiful doors: Ecce Homo, San Jerónimo and the Perdón one, the latter with excellent reliefs of Faith and Justice. The main facade is Baroque. The masonry of the chorus is plateresque. In the lateral chapels excellent altarpieces and paintings are preserved. The old chapter room is currently an exhibition place for the treasure of the cathedral, that also displays pieces in the sacristy and in the Cathedral Museum. One highlight is a Blessed Virgin by Alonso Cano.

One of the main works

This cathedral, combining Gothic and Renaissance styles, is one of the main works of Spanish renaissance. During the Holy Week it has a special relevance, since most of the Brotherhoods go through it. It was built between 1529 and 1537.

Historical majesty

Architecturally speaking it is a world to discover, but the best part of all is the historical significance it has within for the Reconquista of Spain, being that Granada was the last Muslim stronghold.

Especially its height.

The temple is one of the masterpieces of Spanish Renaissance. Is rectangular because their five ships completely cover the cruise, which fails to stand out from the plant. The five ships are staggered in height, with a higher center. At the foot of the cathedral, the two towers are placed, with the left side, called Torre de San Miguel, a buttress which replaced the planned tower on that side.

Sobre todo, su altura.

El templo es una de las obras cumbres del Renacimiento español. Es de planta rectangular debido a que sus cinco naves cubren por completo el crucero, que no llega a destacar sobre la planta. Las cinco naves están escalonadas en alturas, siendo mayor la central. En los pies de la catedral, se sitúan las dos torres, siendo la del lado izquierdo, llamada torre de san Miguel, un contrafuerte que sustituyó a la torre prevista en ese lado.

The cathedral is not far from the hea...

The cathedral is not far from the headquarters of the Albaicn, and the historic center has the advantage of n'tre not too tight. The area around the cathedral is full of small alleys commerantes, some with pretty arches and columns. I also like the little shops in the spcialises spices of all kinds, oh that feels good is when we pass in front of their tal! Here the place of the cathedral, where the ceremonial edifice of colossal proportions, the first Renaissance cathedral in Spain. The interior is equally breathtaking, the dome of the chapel dpasse 40 m high! The old chapter house now houses the treasure of the cathedral.

La cathédrale n'est pas loin du quartier de l'Albaicín, et le centre historique a l'avantage de n'être pas trop étendu.

Le quartier autour de la cathédrale abonde en petites ruelles commerçantes, certaines avec de jolies arcades et colonnettes. J'aime bien aussi ces petites boutiques spécialisées dans les épices de toutes sortes, oh que ça sent bon quand on passe devant leur étal!

Voici la place de la cathédrale, où apparaît l'édifice aux proportions colossales, la première cathédrale de style Renaissance en Espagne. L'intérieur est tout aussi vertigineux, la coupole de la chapelle dépasse les 40 m de hauteur! L'ancienne salle capitulaire abrite aujourd'hui le trésor de la cathédrale.

This cathedral was first built in Renaissance style in Spain. It lies at the heart of the city is a monument that was built in 1518 and was finished in 1704.Elle represents a set of three main buildings, there are not working and half Spanish :) the result I do not even speak if you went through I do not hesitate to go I recommend you really would not be disappointed with the trip.

Cette cathédrale a été la premier construite au style de la renaissance en Espagne.
Elle se situe au cœur de la ville c'est un monument historique qui a été construit en 1518 et qui a été fini en 1704.Elle représente un ensemble de trois corps de bâtiments,y font pas le travail a moitié les espagnols :) et le résultat je n'en parle même pas si vous passé par la n'hésiter pas a i aller je vous le conseille vraiment vous ne serait pas déçus du voyage.

It's lovely, but i do not like q and r have to pay to enter, because if i am a christian would not have to pay for entering a cathedral

It's beautiful, but I do not like q and r have to pay to enter, because if I am a Christian would not have to pay for entering a cathedral. And a teacher at my school was saying it, she never would pay to see a cathedral. And although just opine, tomorrow I will pay audioguia haha ​​:-) I hope worthwhile

Es preciosa, pero no me gusta qyr haya que pagar para entrar, porque si soy cristiana no tendria que pagar por entrar a una catedral

Es preciosa, pero no me gusta qyr haya que pagar para entrar, porque si soy cristiana no tendria que pagar por entrar a una catedral. Y una profesora de mi instituto lo decía, que ella nunca pagaria por ver una catedral. Y aunque opine igual, mañana voy a pagar la audioguia :-) jaja espero merezca la pena

Very beautiful cathedral

It's a little strange when you're French have to pay to enter a cathedral, however, that Granada is full of treasures: paintings, ceremonial clothes, old books, reliquaries, cuts and religious objects ... Gilt, giant paintings, stained glass ... everything attracts the eye and delighted eyes. Each chapel is made by a small text (also in French) explaining the table etc..

Très belle cathédrale

C'est un peu étrange lorsque l'on est français de devoir payer pour entrer dans une cathédrale, néanmoins celle de Grenade regorge de trésors: tableaux, vêtements de cérémonies, livres anciens, reliquaires, coupes et objets religieux... Dorures, tableaux gigantesques, vitraux...tout attire le regard et ravi les yeux. Chaque chapelle est présentée par un petit texte (aussi en français) expliquant le tableau etc.

The facade is impressive Alonso Cano. represents a triple triumphal arch reminiscent of ancient Roman arches. the central arch is taller and larger than the laterals. It is dedicated to the Incarnation and the Virgin is depicted on the facade.

Masquevinos in street tundidores 10 zacatin street, near the corral del carbon.

Masquevinos in street Tundidores 10 Zacatin Street, near the Corral del Carbon. Local welcoming with very good care. Wine, so little seen in dishes like steak tartare Granada, plus many others such as duck with wild berries, sirloin with FOIA and homemade desserts. A place to go visit those who live or Granada. Enjoy your meal and health!

Masquevinos en calle tundidores 10 por la calle zacatin, muy cerca del corral del carbon.

Masquevinos en calle Tundidores 10 por la calle Zacatin, muy cerca del Corral del Carbon.
Local muy acogedor con muy buena atención. Carta de vinos, platos tan poco visto en Granada como el steak tártara, además de muchos otros como el pato con frutas del bosque, solomillo con foia y postres caseros.
Un lugar donde ir aquel que vive o visita Granada.
¡Que aproveche y salud!

Beautiful cathedral

Nice but among the alhambra cathedral, the monastery, the monastery of St. Jerome and the Chapel Royal, the cathedral would remain in last place, so if you're not either time or money visit before the other monuments. Next to the cathedral is a peddler who sells corn cobs, not buy some are lousy, after the second bite threw it

Bonita catedral

Bonita catedral pero entre la alhambra, la cartuja, el monasterio de san jeronimo y la capilla real, la catedral se quedaría en ultimo lugar, por lo tanto si no vas bien de tiempo o de dinero visitaría antes los otros monumentos.

Al lado de la catedral hay un puesto ambulante que vende mazorcas de maiz, no las compréis están malísimas, después del segundo mordisco la tiré
