Extraordinary churchPlain exterior but inside is a extraordinary church full of details. Amazing architecture and beautiful chapels. The main altar is incredible. Well worth the visit.
Very popular with the local people devoted to the Virgin Mary, patron saint of Granada. Visit when there is a Mass.
