Saint Jerome Monastery
Visiting the Monastery of San Jerónimo is a must for all those who want to know one of the most beautiful artistic and architectural jewels of Granada.
It could be almost like a second Cathedral, made up of a church and a monastery.
Its origin is due to the patronage of the Catholic Monarchs in 1492.
Its imposing church stands out, which went through numerous vicissitudes, its landscaped cloisters and the tomb of the Great Captain, the dream of his widow, The Duchess of Sessa who, with the help of the master Siloé, managed to turn a Gothic project into an iconic temple of the Renaissance and highlight the military greatness and heroism of her husband Mr. Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba.
Details and history that a specialist guide will make you live.
