On your way along Calle San Juan de Dios you'll be dazzled by this church's fabulous baroque fa├žade. It's dedicated to Juan Duarte, later canonized as San Juan de Dios, who came to Granada in 1536 and dedicated his life to caring for the sick. He recognized that helping others was good for the soul and encouraged his religious brothers to help themselves by caring for the less fortunate. He died in Casa de los Pisa in 1550. You'll see a silver urn on a raised shrine inside the church that contains his remains. There's also an interesting collection of 17th-century paintings and sculpture.
