Granada Cathedral and the Royal Chapel

You may have visited the magnificent Alhambra; yet do not miss to see the old town of Granda where the Royal Chapel and the Cathedral are located. Around the squares of Plaza Bib Rambla and Plaza Isabel La Catolica you will find an area of beautiful gothic structures. One of them that looks more Andalusian style with its wooden windows; it is indeed a building from the Arab era: Palacio de la Madraza, which was used as a religious school in Andalusia is today a part of the Granada University. Right across this palace is the Royal Chapel, Capilla Real, it is a Gothic style chapel where the tombs of Queen Isabel the 1st and her husband Fernando the 2nd, as well as Juana from Castilla (famous ‘Crazy Juana’) are located. At the corner is the entrance of the Granada Cathedral, even before you enter inside you feel the grandeur of the building with its magnificent façade. The architectural style used in this cathedral is more eighteenth century Renaissance; it was built on the place where the city mosque was located during the Arab period. You will need to pay an entrance fee to visit it just like the cathedrals in Seville and Toledo.
