We stumbled upon the Abbey on our way to the Albaizin area. Was a worthwhile detour as we also stopped and took some lovely scenic photos of the Alhambra in the distance on the way down the winding road to the Abbey.

We took a morning bus as I really wanted to see this place. It was closed. So disappointed. No information anywhere for any visitors. It was a complete waste of the bus fares and our time. I understand that it is a cloistered monastery. But...More

Maybe we were unlucky, but we ended up on a tour (the only one) which was all in Spanish. It cost €4 each and lasted at least 30 mins, but we had no idea what was been said. We tried to catch some words, but...More

A beautiful abbey in a lovely setting. Contrary to other reviews, we got an English speaking guide. She also repeated what she said in Spanish, but while she was doing that you could study the artefacts. She really brought the place to life, although 45...More

This is an interesting site and it is kind of amazing. Much of the building is not accessible and is actually falling apart. Still, there are areas, especially the caves and the small museum that are quite interesting. The legends around St Cecil are presented...More
