  • Granada is a city full of Churches and this is one of the best and oldest. Its views are magnificent and very curious the sprinkled of bells that they will make for you. You have to climb the tower and the stairs are narrow and small.

  • If you are in Granada, you should definitely pass by. The church is architecture of the church is amazing. For 1 cordoba, you can go up to the top of the bell tower. Which give amazing views of Granada. (The stairs to go up are very narrow and steep). But once you are at the top, the pictures are great!
