Iglesia de San Juan de Dios

This baroque church, the Church of John of God, is dedicated to the patron saint of Granada 'Juan de Dios'. On the outside, the church stands out because of the dome covered with white and green tiles.

The church was built between 1737 and 1759 and the facade is characterised by two towers with spires and has three niches that depict important moments from John of God's life. Next to the church is a small hospital that was founded by him, as caring for the ill was his most important work.

The church's exterior isn't particularly special, but the interior is truly magnificent with all its splendour. The colour gold is dominant and the church displays many impressive statues, paintings, wood carvings, large organs, a lush altar and other works of art. This church will certainly make an impression!

Suggestion: Combine a visit to this church with 'Monasterio de Jeronimos'. This monastery is 100 meters away from the church.
