view web site ›'s insider take:

Granada's cathedral offers a Spanish Renaissance break from the Moorish mood of the Alhambra citadel—but not from the ornate richness. Built between 1521 and 1714, the highlights are the 17th-century facade designed by painter Alonso Cano, with a trio of tall arcades, and the intricate Capilla Mayor inside. The Capilla Real—entered around the side of the cathedral—is a late-Gothic fantasyland built from 1506 to 1521 to house the mortal remains of the conquering royal couple, Isabella and Ferdinand, whose last wishes were to be buried not in their native Castile or Aragon but here, in the capital of Moorish Spain, where they achieved their greatest victory toppling the Moorish kingdom and uniting Spain under Catholic rule.
