Although not religious or even catholic the church is interesting to see, and lay a small nominal fee to walk up to the bell tower for360 views of the city. Definitely doesn’t take much time. It worth checking out.

We paid our $1 and climbed the bell tower. Great views and a different perspective. Well worth it. Stairs are very tight and can be scary if afraid of heights as I am.

Definitely worth the narrow staircase trip up to the bell tower. Expect great views and some great shots of Granada for only $1. Go at sundown for the best shots!

Internally, the decoration in places is quite intricate, more so in our opinion than the Cathedral which is relatively plain However the real highlight was the splendid 360 degree views over the city and beyond from the bell tower, accessible by paying $1 per person.

In my opinion the best view of the city. The view from the bell tower beats the view from same at the Cathedral largely because the view from this church includes the Cathedral.

We enjoyed our visit here. We went up on the bell fry and loved the city views as well as the view of the lake Granada. Visit this church, you will never regret it!

The tower gives you a great view of the city. Just don't stand under the bell when someone pulls on the rope ringing it. The stairway is steep and narrow and would be hard for some to navigate. Once you go up you have to...More

Classic, iconic view of Granada, with the view of the tile rooftops and yellow cathedral. Only $1 to go up.

Ramiro made everything stress free. He went overboard on seeing that we had fun. Granada is such a jewell with so much history. Built in 1524. It has a lot of history and he knew it all. From the airport pickup to the airport drop...More

The spiral staircase will lead to a great view of the volcano and all of Granada, it's worth it just for the view.

Well, the church will most likely be open since they offer mass on Christmas day. As for the bell tower I am not quite sure if it will be open or not. However, if it is for $1 you can go to the top and see a spectacular view... More
