The Royal Chapel and the Cathedral
Granada Only company, expert in guided tours of Granada city, offers a guided tour of the historic center of Granada, visiting the Royal Chapel and the Cathedral, with surprising content on religious iconography.
On this tour you will learn about many curiosities and anecdotes from the life of the Catholic Monarchs: Isabel and Ferdinand, along with many of the urban myths and legends that surround our characters.
We made a trip to the past to make them recognize the differentiating architectural elements between the Gothic style of the Royal Chapel compared to the Reinaissance style of the Cathedral.
Apart from that, we will enjoy learning about the construction process of a cathedral, the fruit of the collective effort of a large group of master stonecutters, carpenters, masons, painters and sculptors, united in the great purpose of making something great, bequeathing it to future generations.
We will focus on how things were done back in the XVI century: churches, sculptures, stained-glass windows and choir books, in a magnificent legacy for the enjoyment of our clients with unique and original content.
The guided tour ends with a tour of the souk or alcaicería, to culminate seeing the Christian transformations, carried out in the place where the Muslim market was.
The content of this route is the success of our behavioral thread that ensures the enjoyment of our clients.
