Create an itinerary including Royal Chapel of Granada
Meant to be the final resting place of Charles I of Spain, Royal Chapel of Granada is an example of Renaissance architecture that acts as a centerpiece for the city of Granada. In the main chapel are effigies of Isabel and Ferdinand, known as the Catholic Monarchs. Under the elaborate arches and buttresses you'll find El Greco paintings alongside works by Jusepe de Ribera and Alonso Cano. The mishmash of architectural styles and paintings of various periods is no wonder, considering the cathedral took 181 years to build.

  • Out of the many churches, cathedrals, and chapels I have been to in Europe this was the least exiting to go to. First of all, I was treated with a fee, which is a rare sight especially in a place of this nature. Second, the fee offered nothing unique or worth seeing. There was a very limited collection of art. Such a tourist trap. If you want the true authentic experience, visit next door’s cathedral for free.
  • Absolutely beautiful and something you won’t want to miss. The intricacy of detail involved in carving the marble was truly impressive. This experience inspired me to learn more about the reign of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. Oh, be prepared to be stopped by different women handing out sage and telling your fortune at every corner around this chapel!
