Granada Cathedral Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Granada Cathedral

The Royal Chapel of Granada Cathedral is a prime example of the grandeur of this Renaissance-style building. It features an incredibly beautiful stained-glass cupola adorned with sculptures and paintings by Alonso Cano.
The most emblematic doorways to the cathedral are the Ecce Homo, the San Jeronimo and the Perdón doors, the latter displaying some superb representations of Faith and Justice. The side chapels are also home to some wonderful alter pieces and paintings. The former chapter house now houses an exhibition of the cathedral's treasures, with certain items also displayed in the sacristy and the cathedral museum. Items displayed notably include Alonso Cano's interpretation of the Immaculate Conception.
