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.
