The street-facing wall belies the grand interior of the church. When one first enters the pretty cloister, one cannot imagine the grandeur that will await in the church. Today the place house nuns, which have their own cloistered section (not accessible to the public).

We enjoyed our visit to this monastery. Not hugely special, but several interesting bits to see and not too far from centre of town.

This attraction is well worth the walk. The artwork is very different to the Cathedral and looks to some extent like a huge tattoo canvass. We get cathedral weary after a while but this place was a little different. It also lacked the big crowds and only cost 4 euros to go in. Really glad we made the effort

We went to this monument because it was included in the Granada Card and it is a hidden gem. The place is very peaceful and quite, and the church is stunning.

Wonderful cloisters with many austere rooms such as refectories from them, finally leading to the large and impressive church.

Beautifully decorated but lacks the wow feeling you get in the Basilica of St John one block beside this place. Better than the cathedral at least. After (or before) looking in the church, take a walk around the cloister and take a look into to rooms around here. Guide on paper can be bought in the entrance. No signs inside... More

Lovely gothic monastery and church in traditional Spanish style. They also sell condiments and biscuits from the present occupants who are nuns.

We visited here as it was included as part of the Granada card otherwise we might not have bothered. Nice gardens and architecture and interesting as it goes.

Sure, Alhambra deserves admiration but not the attitude of bar and restaurant owners towards tourists. No drink prices are displayed, and it seems you are charged according to your face. We had a couple of beer and when I asked the price list to check the bill, I was answered in Spanish: Soy la lista de precios ( I am... More

Monasterio de San Jeronimo was included on our Monastery Tour with granadapicnictours. It was a peaceful place when we visited on a fairly warm day. Cool inside the stone walled courtyard. We enjoyed it but it didn't impress like the Cartuja.
