Royal Chapel of Granada, Granada

4.3
Meant to be the final resting place of Charles I of Spain, Royal Chapel of Granada is an example of Renaissance architecture that acts as a centerpiece for the city of Granada. In the main chapel are effigies of Isabel and Ferdinand, known as the Catholic Monarchs. Under the elaborate arches and buttresses you'll find El Greco paintings alongside works by Jusepe de Ribera and Alonso Cano. The mishmash of architectural styles and paintings of various periods is no wonder, considering the cathedral took 181 years to build.

  • Serene and beautiful. You can see the final resting place of the unifiers of Spain and the starters of the Spanish empire. This location is truly beautiful and worth the visit. The audio guide is a must
