Tucked away in a side street is this museum to San Juan to Dios. Lovely building and very interesting to learn about San Juan. We had a guided tour as part of the charge to visit. Go find it!

Beautiful decorated in the original interior patio style of the age and the location, which comes from the Moorish need/desire to have private space inside a quadrant or 'carmen' as they're known. Lovely mosaics and colonnades with a central fountain and statues all around the...More

Run by the Hospitallers of St John, this is a very interesting museum in an historic building. You enter through a beautiful Andalusian courtyard.

My wife and I visited the Museum during a four night stay in Granada. The Museum combines a fascinating collection of objects related to this Catholic order within the confines of an outstanding example of Spanish 16th century architecture. Well worth a visit.

Room after room of slightly creepy art and artefacts relating to the equally creepy St John of God. Loved the atmosphere and the bizarre selection of exhibits. Three euros with a guided tour by an enthusiastic young guide. Recommended

A myriad of religious artifacts, and the story of San Juan De Dios are housed here. This is also the house where he died, and a room upstairs has a patch uncovered to the original floor where he died while kneeling and praying. A docent...More
