San Jeronimo Monastery (Monasterio de San Jerónimo) Tours

San Jeronimo Monastery (Monasterio de San Jerónimo)
San Jeronimo Monastery (Monasterio de San Jerónimo), the first monastery built after the Christian conquest of Granada, was also the first church in the world consecrated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary. The monastery is known for housing one of the most exquisite Spanish Baroque sacristies on earth, as well as its courtyard, which is filled with orange trees.

The Basics

The late-Gothic and Renaissance 16th-century monastery, designed by Diego de Siloé, ranks among Granada’s most impressive Catholic monuments. Visitors can choose between a basic entrance ticket or opt for the Granada Card, which includes public transport and entrance to other city attractions like the Cathedral and Royal Chapel and the Alhambra.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The San Jerónimo Monastery is a must-see for architecture buffs and spiritual travelers.
  • Remember to dress respectfully—this is an active place of worship.
  • The monastery is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The easiest way to get to the monastery is to take city bus Route 6 to the Gran Capitan stop and walk from there.

When to Get There
The monastery is open daily, with reduced hours on Sundays and holidays. Those who wish to attend a mass can do so daily at 9am or on Sundays at 10am.

The Final Resting Place of El Gran Capitán

Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, One of Granada’s great heroes, is entombed at the foot of the steps within the monastery church. The military man, nicknamed El Gran Capitán (The Great Captain), earned a reputation for his prowess in the Conquest of Granada and the Italian Wars. Visitors can see statues of de Córdoba and his wife on either side of the retable.
