Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Andalucia / Province of Granada / Granada / Basilica de San Juan de Dios
Basilica de San Juan de Dios is the spiritual center of the St John of God order, and an ideal example of the Granada Baroque architectural style. Walk around the church to see the towers and facade before entering to view the ornately decorated interior. As you explore, you will see elaborately decorated domes and chapels, with walls covered in artwork, inlaid mirrors, and a wealth of gilded furnishings. Make your way to the sacristy and see a museum-like collection of 62 frames and mirrors, or climb up to the dressing room to a gallery of art pieces. Wander into the post-chapel and see precious objects that have survived the numerous lootings that the church has undergone, then view the gold adornments of the Camarín reliquary. If you prefer a more religious experience, Sunday masses are still held. By using our Granada trip itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Basilica de San Juan de Dios and other attractions in Granada.

One of the most intricate and gorgeous basilicas I've ever seen. The detail and care of the structure is phenomenal. Access to all areas of the sanctuary and interesting audio tour. A MUST in Granada!
Absolutely amazing Basilica! Definitely worth visiting. Don't forget to put a coin donation in the light box to illuminate the whole golden wall of the altar.
