We stopped into this parish church out of curiosity on our way to Charles V’s palace, and we were glad we did. The altarpiece had a wonderful representation of the resurrection, with Jesus springing joyfully from the grave carrying a redeemed world to his father....More

If you're walking by it when visiting the Alhambra, by all means step inside for a few moments. The Baroque altarpiece is pretty. Free entry.
