This church is located in between the “Baths of the Mosque” and the “Carlos V Palace”. You have to keep in your mind that this church opens only at 10h00 AM not before, so look to the time left over before you have to visit the “Nasries Palaces”. A nice church and worth the visit, is not so Bling Bling... More

The Church of Santa Maria de la Alhambra is a small but beautiful church and the main altarpiece is quite impressive. We were able to talk to the man in charge of the church and he gave us very good information about the church and its paintings.

I popped into this church beside the Charles V Palace for a quick look while others in my tour group went into a souvenir shop. From the outside, the building doesn't look like a church except for the bell tower. The exterior has no obvious religious figures on the roof line or around the door for ornamentation like other European... 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.

Most of the Alhambra is open to the public and free to enter. One of the highlights is the Church of Santa Maria, adjacent to the Palace of Charles V. Located beside the palace, the simplicity of the brick and stone construction is in stark contrast to the massive carved stones of the palace. However, inside the Church, the Baroque... More

It was a surprise to walk into this lovely church, which is quite worth visiting. It has a very interesting history, as it was built in the 16th-17th centuries. They sure did take time to complete massive structures in those days! The baroque style is unmistakable as soon as you set eyes on this beautiful church. Definitely worth a visit.

It is near the op of Albayzin and the plaza outside offers and excellent view of the Alhambra. Inside the church is small and modest but worth a visit. Like most places there is an English description and this church has seen its trouble over the years.

During one's visit to La Alhambra this Baroque chapel merits a visit. A quiet respite from outside with art and gold everywhere. The altar gets one's attention.

You must visit, when visting La Alhambra. Very nice Baroque church of early XVII c. If you are lucky enough to be in Granada during Easter, this is the procession you can't miss
