“Give him alms, woman, for there is nothing worse in life than to be blind in Granada”
Francisco A. de Icaza
In 1492, the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada, the last Muslim stronghold of Europe, falls victim to the conquest of the Catholic Kings, through this important crusade, becoming the “new Jerusalem of the West.”
In an evangelizing and Christianizing effort, the city of Granada underwent important transformations, such as the construction of the imposing Cathedral, which shelters up to three different architectural styles, and which was erected on the site of the old Great Mosque.
Likewise, this emblematic city, symbol of the triumph of Christianity, was chosen by Queen Elizabeth as the Pantheon of Christian royalty, with the Royal Chapel being the maximum exponent of that intention.
Cathedral and Capilla Real will be protagonists in this visit for the monumental center of Granada, where we will unravel its symbolism, the architectural richness, as well as the magnificent artistic works, among which are the fabulous treasure, the spectacular maussoleums made in marble of Carrara or the impressive collection of flamenco paintings
