Ok, I know this was built with funds donated to the glory of God, but this is the most amazing building! The organ, the chapels, the columns! We should care as much for those who see what is built. Amazing!

The cathedral only charges Euro 5 to go in, so its worth a visit if you are in the area - plus it is the 4th largest Cathedral in the world. In the square outside there are a few nice places for lunch too!

This is one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in Europe. The altar and the organs are spectacular. You could spend time in prayer in peaceful surroundings.

Visited this beautiful catherdral yesterday and enjoyed a quick visit. You can walk around in about 30 minutes and enjoy the architecture, longer if you listen to all is the vpice guide you are given on the door. It is only €5 per person and helps with the upkeep of the building. Definitely worth a visit.

Must have tickets. They aren't always open so check out times ahead of time. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel are buried here. Not a very large tour and doesn't take a lot of time to go through.

The cathedral is in the center of Granada. It is considered to be the first Renaissance church in Spain. Now it works like museum also. Ticket price - 5 euro. Audiogude is included in this price.

Built in the 16th Century after the Moors had departed, this cathedral is immense and impressive. It boasts two organs,
