The exquisite Granada Cathedral was built by Queen Isabella at the site of a mosque as a symbol of victory for the Catholic Kings over Moorish rule. It also marked the end of the Reconquista after the conquest of Granada. It is a masterpiece of Spanish Renaissance with its dramatic facades and impressive interiors adorned with a grand altar and several chapels. In the burial chamber are the tombs of Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon collectively known as the Catholic Kings. A visit to the stunning architectural site is complimented by a private guided tour with an expert local guide.
