The Royal Monastery of St. Jerome (Spanish: Real Monasterio de San Jerónimo de Granada) is a Roman Catholic Hieronymite monastery in Granada, Spain. Architecturally, it is in the Renaissance style. The church, famous for its architecture, was the first in the world consecrated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary.
The monastery was founded by the Catholic Monarchs Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon in Santa Fe outside the city of Granada, during the siege of the latter city, the last stage of the Reconquista. The construction of the current buildings in Granada properly began in 1504, and the monastery relocated at that time. The principal architect and sculptor was Diego de Siloé; others involved as architects or sculptors included Jacopo Torni (from Florence), Juan de Aragón, Juan Bautista Vázquez the Younger (Vázquez el Mozo), Pedro de Orea, and Pablo de Rojas, the last three associated with the Granadan school of sculpture.

Beautiful interior, nice and calm. The guide booklet could have done a better job to clarify which pictures and sights it's talking about but other than that well worth the visit.

Very nice, despite that the entrance is not well indicated so it's not easy to spot

Do yourself a favour, stop in here for a 'take your breath away' moment as you step inside the main cathedral. 4 euro well spent.

Wonderful mix of austere monastic setting with rich baroque church interiors. As one enters, there isnt much to see -- an orange grove in the courtyard, a number of reflection rooms with spartan furniture and some interesting paintings. But the end reveals the wonderful church. 4 euros. Closed for siesta between 130pm to 4pm on weekdays.

Not big, but nice place with beautifully painted and decorated church. 4 EUR entry, definitely worth it.

I've been to many monasteries & is really hard to find anything to top Lisbon's. The actual chapel is interesting fue it's intrinsic design. The monetary on its own is not tgat interesting.
