Catedral and Capilla Real Visit

leave a comment »

On Friday afternoon, I went on a tour of Granada’s Cathedral and Royal Chapel with ISA (my program company for the January intensive month). The cathedral is huge, with ginormous columns and a large dome.

There’s some interesting aspects of the Royal Chapel. The coffins of the Catholic Monarchs, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, and those of daughter Queen Juana la loca (the crazy) and her husband and child are on display underground. Cameras weren’t allowed in the Royal Chapel, but they were in the Cathedral, surprisingly.

I believe this guy on the horse is St. James. I definitely remember he slayed moors. There are still people in Spain with the last name of Moor Slayer or Matamoros in Spanish.
