Overview

You could spend the whole day just visiting monumental religious buildings in the vicinity of Calle San Juan de Dios. This sumptuous stone church with its spherical dome, graceful Doric columns and classical form is one of the finest works of religious architecture in Granada. Built on the site of the Majadalbecy mosque, it was originally part of a Jesuit college. Work began in 1556 and continued until 1719 when the portico and baroque tower were completed. The main fa├žade is decorated with marble reliefs depicting the Jesuit saints. The sacristy contains a rich collection of religious art.
