The House of St. John Bosco was constructed at the start of the 20th century. It is a small palace with a modernist style and it belonged to a family from Granada, who later donated it to the Salesian Order as a retirement home for priests and sick people. The building has a beautiful patio decorated in the Mudejar style and has many ceramics of the area. There are tapestries dating to the 19th century and furniture made from walnut, with an outstanding fireplace. The garden is beside the gorge of the Tajo and one has a very good view of the New Bridge. The garden is beautiful and has a wonderful setting.
