Monasterio Cartuja, Granada

4.4
Considered one of the most beautiful monasteries in the country and a fine example of Spanish Baroque architecture, Monasterio Cartuja took around 300 years to build. Sculptures and paintings fill its flamboyantly decorated interior, and you can’t miss the dome mural. Notice the way the geometric surfaces echo each other, and think of this as the Christian reply to the Moorish Alhambra. Consider taking the bus to reach this attraction.

  • It's outside the old town of Granada, and not that a lot of people don't visit it. We were pleasantly surprised by the catity of paintings, altarpieces and murals inside, you do not expect everything you will see. Wonderful.

  • It is undoubtedly one of the highlights of a visit to Granada. The church and the sacristy are absolutely unreadable. It's a little far from the center, but it's worth the trip.

  • This is an amazing place the best is saved until last. It is a must visit when in Granada. I have seen some amazing things, but the shock I got in the church surpassed them all. I will not say what it is, as this will spoil the surprise, but make sure you see all parts of the church. Please make sure you take a taxi here. It is only 4 euro. It is really worth your while spending the time.
  • A true work of the Holy Spirit which guided men to construct monumental works to the worship of our Heavenly Father. I could easily become a Monk and really study the word of God. A truly great place. Works of genious.
