“A Treasure of Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

This museum is hard to find. From Carrera del Darro, turn on the street called Calle Bañuelo.


The Monastery of la Concepcion is located in the Barrio Albaicin and was built in the 16th century. The monastery has been converted into a museum and has works of art created over the last five centuries. There is a large patio with an octagonal fountain. The founder of the monastery was Leonor Ramirez. She went to Rome in 1518 to ask permission to honor the Immaculate Concepcion in Granada. She was given permission by the Church to do this. The church was finished in the 17th century. The museum also has period furniture. Among the artists represented are Jacobo Florentino, Sanchez Cotan, Pablo de Rojas, Pacheco, Ambrosio Martinez de Bustos, Alonso and Pedro de Mena, Alonso Cano, Bocanegra, Juan de Sevilla, Jose de Mora, and Risueño.
