Cartuja Monstery - Monasterio de la Cartuja de GranadaMonasterio de la Cartuja was formerly a Roman cemetery. In 1506 the Great Captain donated land to the monks so that they could build the Monastery. Construction was interrupted so that three centuries later it was still not completed.
You can enter the Cartuja Monastery through a simple patio with arches. Inside the monastery you will first see the Refectory and the Church.
The Church has a single nave divided into three parts. The first part was for the monks, the second part immediately behind this for the laity, and the third, near the door of the church, was for the people.
What really has given fame to the Monastery of the Cartuja in Granada is the sacristy, to the left of the presbytery.
The Sacristy has a dazzling appearance hard to describe because of the chromatic richness of its marbles.
The Cartuja Monastery is an example of a unique Baroque style and offers great paintings and sculptures of the Granada School.
