We arrived in Granada at the wee hour. Once we took the bus to the city center the first building that caught our eyes when we alighted was Granada Cathedral.
This picture of Granada Cathedral was taken at around 8.00 am on 15th of August 2014. Very bright sky and hot summer in Granada. It reached 37 degree Celsius in the afternoon and walking outside in that weather almost toasted us. ^^
Since we could only checked in at 10.30 a.m. into Los Tilos Hotel (on our first day in Granada and check my review of the hotel here), we wandered around quite a bit around the area.
The first spot was Granada Cathedral. It is really HUGE!! *sayup mata memandang…I just had had to say this in Malay language to show how tall this cathedral is…hehehe..*
The exact same spot of Granada Cathedral was actually the spot of Granada Mosque – ‘Foundations for the church were laid by the architect Egas starting from 1518 to 1523 atop the site of the city’s main mosque’ Wikipedia and ‘Granada Cathedral was built by Queen Isabella immediately after the conquest of Granada on the site of the Mosque. This cathedral is a masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance
We entered the Cathedral and there was no entrance fee but picture or video taking of the interior were strictly prohibited.
