The Cathedral and Royal Chapel of Granada is one of the essential tourist visits in our city, a place where you can enjoy art in its purest form thanks to the fusion of styles, the dimensions of the Cathedral's floor plan and its spectacular façade.
The Cathedral of Granada is located right in the centre of the city, and is one of the most imposing monuments in Granada and a masterpiece of the Spanish Renaissance.
Likewise, the Catholic Monarchs chose the city of Granada as their burial place, creating, by Royal Decree dated 13 September 1504, the Royal Chapel. It was built between 1505 and 1517 and dedicated to the Santos Juanes, San Juan Bautista and San Juan Evangelista.
The guided tour of the Cathedral and Royal Chapel can be conducted in the following languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian and Russian.
Located in the centre of the city, the Cathedral of Granada is one of the largest and most important in our country and is a historical enclave for the city, being the first Renaissance temple. Isabel La Católica ordered its construction in 1505, the architect being Diego de Siloé.
Its Renaissance style has been a great landmark and even an inspiration for other cathedrals and temples, as has its majestic Baroque façade.
The Royal Chapel of Granada has more than five centuries of history in the city. It contains the crypt where the Catholic Monarchs, Don Fernando of Aragon and Doña Isabel of Castile, who ordered its construction, as well as Juana I, Don Felipe and Infante Miguel, are buried.
It is a cult temple in the Gothic style, forming an annex with the Cathedral of Granada. We can appreciate its simplicity as well as its wealth thanks to a generous endowment from the queen.
