Great experience

Essential Granada, Albaicín and Sacromonte, 2 tours in which we have coincided with Alain. The route is wonderful and Alain is one of those guides who makes you think, one of those who tells the story in a very pleasant way... a marvellous guide.
We also booked a tour of the Alhambra, in this case we were guided by Edu, who is very knowledgeable about the history and landscaping. The 3 tours we have done with Walk in Granada 100% recommendable.

Grupo 1

A wonderful walk through Granada's history.

La Fonda and the Alcaicería (Zacatín). An entertaining and didactic class on the history of the four cultures of Granada. It was very short.


Grupo 2

Granada is unique

Granada is a unique city and if you are lucky enough to have a person like Eduardo explain it to you, the city becomes even more attractive. Very, very entertaining and historically accurate visit.

Royal Chapel: General information

The Royal Chapel of Granada is a historical and religious monument located in the city of Granada, Spain. It is known for being the final resting place of the Catholic Monarchs, Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon, as well as their daughter Joanna I and her husband Philip the Handsome.

The tombs, considered one of the masterpieces of Spanish Renaissance, are made of white marble and contain the recumbent statues of the kings, sculpted by the Italian artist Domenico Fancelli.

The Royal Chapel is a place of great historical and cultural importance in Spain. In addition to its artistic value, it is also a pilgrimage destination for those who wish to pay tribute to the Catholic Monarchs and explore the history of Spain during the final stages of the conquest.

History of the Royal Chapel

The history dates back to the 16th century. It began to be constructed as a mausoleum for the monarchs in 1505 and was completed in 1521.

Granada holds great significance for the Catholic Monarchs. At the beginning of their reign, Spain was divided into five kingdoms, but the integration of Granada marked a decisive step towards the unification of these kingdoms and a milestone in the birth of Spain as a nation. Thus, the city became the center of the Kingdom and the place where the monarchs expressed their desire to be buried in writing.

Artistic treasures in the Royal Chapel

Inside, you can appreciate masterpieces by renowned artists, such as paintings by Alonso Cano, sculptures by Juan de Flandes, and historically valuable tapestries.

Furthermore, it boasts a collection of liturgical objects that reflect the wealth and splendor of the era.

The building itself is a magnificent example of Isabelline Gothic architecture.

Granada Cathedral: General Information

The Granada Cathedral, also known as the Holy Metropolitan Cathedral Church of the Incarnation of Granada, is one of the main monuments in the city of Granada. Built on the site of the former main mosque, its construction began in 1523 and was completely finished, after numerous issues over two centuries, in 1704.

The Cathedral features a sacristy and a museum, where ancient liturgical objects, tapestries, and manuscripts are displayed.

Architecture and Features

The Cathedral of Granada presents an impressive combination of architectural styles. Its main facade displays a majestic Baroque presence, while its interior houses what is considered the first church of the Spanish Renaissance, built on a floor plan originally designed in a late Gothic style. Its bell tower stands out, having become an emblem of the city.

The interior design of the cathedral features a Latin cross floor plan, with a wide central nave and elegant side chapels. The ornamental richness of its vaults and arches is dazzling. The features of this cathedral are a testament to the skill and mastery of the architects and builders who erected it.


Works of Art and Relics in the Cathedral
