Beautiful museum one block up from Plaza Nueva.

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

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 priori we could think this museum dedicated to the leading figure of st. John of God is just a religious museum, but once you overcome reluctancies and prejudices and go in to this historical building in Granada,please enjoy the calm of its patio, you discover a very very different universe. Ok without beating around the bush, you'll find lots... More

One thing that is striking is San Juan de Dios gave away his rich inheritance & devoted his life to serving the poor & sick; therefore, the adorations of gold to him, are a questionable honor in his memory. Our guide was a virtual.encyclopedia of knowledge. Some unique stories, especially about his bastulo

Without a doubt this is the best art museum I have been to. It consists of a superlative collection of Spanish art (paintings and sculptures) from the 15th and early 20th century. The layout of the museum is beautiful. You can see all in a 1 hour visit . I suggest getting to the museum early in the morning. Until... More

What a charming museum this is! A short, English or Spanish tour takes you through the items in the collection. It is intimate and interesting so our children aged 10, 9 and 6 could easily relate to the items on display and not get bored.

Included in the tour was a visit to the exact spot that he died, at the time of our visit a mass was going to be held for an Australian group in the same bedroom there is also a private chapel...
