    The House of the Pisa family, important at that time, houses the museum dedicated to Saint John of God, who died in this House welcomed by his family, and his work. Many items and an archive of his work. The extinction of the family became property of the hospitaller order. To see if you are interested in the story of the Saint.

    On my trip to Granada was not programmed to enter this site, but we saw it by chance and seemed curious. €3 entrance, with a discount for another site, and the visit was guided. At the beginning we were surprised by the youth of the Guide, in practice, but despite this it was extremely proper and educated to solving each one of the questions that we we you demonstrating extensive knowledge of art. And the Museum is a wonder no more. It's about San Juan de Dios, who did not know, but there are a variety of works that are clearly treasures. Highly recommended, besides the staff of entry also correct. I remember that the guide was called Natalia.

    We came across the site by accident, unemployment is worth. Exposure has real gems, and the view does not know where to go. The culmination is the room where he died San Juan de Dios, where an impressive atmosphere. To make matters worse, the visit we made was almost intimate, only my wife and I, although the only negative points were a guide in practice with any knowledge lagoon, but very friendly and eager, and that we could not access the chapel. Moreover, it's worth completely without a doubt for lovers of religious and ethnic art, and Spanish religious culture, despite talk of a character of Portuguese origin.

Where to stay in Granada

Granada is built in a valley looking up to the majestic Alhambra, and most visitors choose to stay where the view can be admired. Plaza Nueva, just down the hill from the Alhambra entry gates, constitutes the touristic center of the city. Many of the famous free-tapas bars and lively restaurants line this famous plaza, as well as a number of small hotels and apartment rentals. Found directly behind the plaza are the city's two historical old Moorish quarters, Albayzín and El Sacramonte, which are characterized by their narrow winding streets and picturesque whitewashed buildings. Here you'll find a number of charming hotels with hillside views of the Alhambra and city center.
