What To Expect
Be in the presence of a Gothic masterclass as you visit the Granada Chapel, designed by architect Enrique Egas, master of the Old Gothic School. It was commissioned by Queen Isabel immediately after the Reconquista of Granada on the site of a Mosque. The cathedral is a collective brainchild of the artistic geniuses of the time with collaborations between Egas, Dieog de Siloe, Juan de Maena, Juan de Orea, Ambrosio de Vico, and finally Alonso Cano who added baroque touches to its Gothic design. The cathedral has a rectangular base, with five naves that completely cover the cross. You will be amazed by its towering Corinthian columns, vault of delicate stained glass windows and the triumphal arch that makes up its imposing facade.
Familiarize yourself with the Catholic Monarchs who reclaimed Granada in the Reconquista at the Royal Chapel where their remains lay. The Royal Chapel of Granada is a mausoleum rich with tapestries, portraits, relics, ornaments, paintings and Baroque sculptures. It was commissioned by King Fernando and Queen Isabel, the parents of Juana the Mad, a most enigmatic royal figure who continued to caress her husband after his death. Here you can find the remains of the family, including Juana's husband Philip the Handsome. The museum contains Ferdinand's sword and Isabel's scepter, silver crown and personal art collection.
