Royal Chapel of Granada (Capilla Real)
Situated side by side, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel of Granada (Capilla Real) together make an impressive monument to the power of Christian monarchs in Andalucia. The cavernous cathedral houses paintings by Ribera and El Greco; the remains of Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragón are interred within the chapel’s shrine.

The Basics
As two of Granada’s most notable architectural landmarks, the Cathedral and Royal Chapel feature in many guided sightseeing tours of the city. Those interested in learning more about the political and religious significance of the buildings, as well as their architectural and artistic details, can take an in-depth guided tour led by a professional art historian.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Cathedral and Royal Chapel are must-sees for anyone hoping to better understand Granada’s tumultuous religious history.
  • You can opt for a private and or group tour.
  • Both the Cathedral and Royal Chapel charge entrance fees for cultural visits.
  • Remember to dress respectfully—these are active places of worship.

How to Get There
The cathedral complex, including the Royal Chapel, is located in the historic city center. Get there by taking the LAC city bus (C1, C2, SN1, or SN4) or by taxi.

When to Get There
The cathedral and chapel are both open daily, with reduced hours on Sundays. The facilities are closed to sightseers during daily mass, though worshipping visitors are welcome to attend. Both the Taking of Granada (January 2) and Columbus Day (October 12) are celebrated at the Royal Chapel.

Granada Private Tour: The Cathedral and the Royal Chapel

star-5
This tour is focused mostly on christian dominion over the Granada city in XVI century, when it was conquered by the Catholic Kings from the last muslim dynasty who ruled in Granada. The Cathedral and the Royal Chapel were constructed to underline the victory of the new rulers and to be a significant representation of christianity in Granada. Today theese are one of the main touristic attractions of the city, both are marvellous examples of architecture that contain valuable pieces of art from medieval ages,like flemish paintings or german sculptures, just to mention few. The Royal Chapel additionally stands out as the final resting place for Queen Isabella and her husband king Ferdinand, whose glory is still remembered vividly in Spain.
