Saint Jerome Monastery, Granada

4.3
Built of stones from the Arab gate of Elvira, the altar of Saint Jerome Monastery is one of Gil de Siloe's most renowned works. Wear walking shoes and make the 700 m (2,297 ft) trek to the site to view the monastery's exceptional artwork. The sacristy draws visitors from all over the world to view the carvings of Luis Cabello, which number over 1,000 and are stacked in niches all the way to the ceiling of the nave and beyond. In the courtyard, you'll see shields and initials adorning 36 semicircular arches lining the corridors that surround the interior garden.
