It surely is the most richly decorated church i've ever seen. One may like its opulence or not but is surely is worth seeing. Both the ground floor and the upper floors reachable by the stairs, offer interesting views of the decorations.

I agree with Chris from London - this is really over the top. It has more gold, babies, angels, reliquaries, figurines, you name it, than any other church in Spain. Especially for a relics buff this place is extraordinary. Beyond opulent, truly fascinating and more...More

Nothing quite prepares you for the sheer opulence of this building. Opulent probably doesn't really do it justice. I've been to a lot of churches in Spain and Italy that were head-to-foot drenched in gold and silver but this church out-does most of them with...More

Though I am not very religious, still, it was shocking to enter the church through the office/chambers of priests and through the altar (!). Bit like going through the whole church kitchen. The church itself is very opulent, gilded to the last edge, it is...More

Better in our opinion than the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel. This is a gem of a church. Amazingly enough you can walk through the altar.

I was not impressed with the inside of the Basilica it decoration was in my opinion way over the top. Having said that you had to admire the work and craftsmanship that had gone into the interior

We actually popped in here whilst there was a service on so got a feel for the place whilst occupied. The various altars just hit you with their opulence and though I find it a bit overbearing I can appreciate it's magnificance and the feeling...More

A must visit when in Granada. To see the magnificence of this building and to marvel at the way this was constructed some 700 years ago is just mind blowing

Absolutely beautiful, I've been to many churches and cathedral, but this was undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous ad intricately designed. I was surprised by the intriguing structure where we could walk through the altar

no need to purchase in advance. We found very few queues in Granada even though we read that there would be.
