Restored with an ornate interior in the 1860s, the church today contains an image of the Virgen de Fatima, a sacred object that draws many pilgrims.

  • Come here and enter the bell towers to see dachowki of nearby buildings. Sometimes in the middle of the day closes with but Granada is so little worth come for an hour and see this view. Be sure to look here before sunset the Sun. Light is suited wtedt even greater charm

  • Loved the view of the city from the bell tower. It is truly remarkably picturesque and compact. Lovely parks and walks. Enjoyed this place and a good city with Byron, an excellent local guide.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful churches of Granada is the Iglesia de la Merced, a church from 1783 which was heavily damaged during the civil war and the earthquake of 2000, but now beautifully restored. The decor in this Baroque church is exuberant, the building has beautiful stained glass Windows, there are beautiful marble altars and reliefs on the walls that the cloisters of Jesus. From the clock tower one has a beautiful view over the city of Granada!!
