Basílica de San Juan de Dios, Granada

(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Basílica de San Juan de Dios is the spiritual center of the St John of God order, and an ideal example of the Granada Baroque architectural style. Walk around the church to see the towers and facade before entering to view the ornately decorated interior. As you explore, you will see elaborately decorated domes and chapels, with walls covered in artwork, inlaid mirrors, and a wealth of gilded furnishings. Make your way to the sacristy and see a museum-like collection of 62 frames and mirrors, or climb up to the dressing room to a gallery of art pieces. Wander into the post-chapel and see precious objects that have survived the numerous lootings that the church has undergone, then view the gold adornments of the Camarín reliquary. If you prefer a more religious experience, Sunday masses are still held.

  • Amazing beauty of the details of this Baroque church. Tourists have wide access to all dependencies by looking at the Cathedral from the top down. Without doubt, the most beautiful baroque Church and that most impressed the world. Worth the visit.

  • Splendid church a few minutes from the Cathedral dedicated to the most beloved of Granada, whose remains are housed on the first floor. Upon entering you remain dazzled: it's all gold or silver, everything shines, the glitz to overcome every descriptive capability. A true wonder of Andalusian Baroque, which is not excessive, but beautiful and harmonious and conducive to meditation. Dear the caretaker who escorted us upstairs and showed us the treasure.

  • The afternoon is open as a Museum, in the evenings pass service. Very beautiful, Baroque. Has recently been restored. You can go through the internal premises and rise above. There are audio guides (Russian). Worthy of attention. Entry 4 euros.
