Granada Cathedral

Here are a few pictures of the large Cathedral in the historical centre of Granada.

Outside pictures were hard to take due to the surrounding buildings.

The main alter with the huge organ on either side.

This gal was sitting in the Cathedral drawing without looking at the paper and it looked like she was doing a great job, but she covered it up when she realized that I was peeking. 

A model of the Cathedral. 

Note the 8 points on the stars on the door in the Christian Cathedral… There is evidence of Arabic influence every where.

Hymn books for the choir. They were very large so the choir could see them from a distance.

This chapel had urns in it withe the names of Saints. 

A confessional . 

This room had some beautiful pictures on display . 

There were statues and lots of mirrors in the room where the pictures were on display .  Ithe was weird to keep seeing yourself in the mirrors ; kind of like being on display yourself . 

One of the many chapels in the Cathedral . 

Another ornate chapel . 

Beautiful tapestries were displayed in one of the museum like rooms.

A chapel . 

There are a lot more pictures -I could keep going…..but….
