A lavish homage to a pair of Spain's most famous monarchs
Resting place of the legendary King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella
The Christian reconquest of Granada from the Moors was so important for Ferdinand and Isabella that they had a chapel built here to house their tombs. The structure combines Renaissance and Gothic elements and is absolutely a must for all visitors to the city. The Plateresque entrance, with its multitude of religious figures, already gives a good indication of its lavishness. The interior is in the form of a Latin cross, its walls adorned with the coat of arms of the "Catholic Monarchs". The tomb itself, the work of the Tuscan Domenico Fancelli, is carved in marble, and is crowned with supine sculptures of the king and queen, executed with remarkable realism.
