Were recommended to go there but didn't expect much as we had grown to enjoy the Muslim art a bit more than the Catholic one as part of our Andalucia tour...but it's really... read more

Were recommended to go there but didn't expect much as we had grown to enjoy the Muslim art a bit more than the Catholic one as part of our Andalucia tour...but it's really exciting! I mean really really. You can get super close to the relics of St John and other Saints that are in their golden shrines (you can... More

San Jaun de Dios (St John of God, apparently) is meant to be the Patron Saint of Children and so this building used to be a children's hospital. The architecture and general layout is quite impressive and the mosaic floor and fountain in the middle provides nice detail. We were taken here on out walking tour, but really 10-15 minutes...

The architecture is amazing and all the paintings and monuments inside very interesting to look at. Probably no good for kids as ours got bored. Make sure you go as a couple and don't take kids.

The Basilica's outside may not be very spectacular, but the inside certainly is. Huge, baroque and very special indeed.

Coming from Seville I did not have much expectations. Boy was I wrong. The work inside the church is just fascinating. Wether you like the style or not you cannot but appreciate the craftsmanship that has gone into this church. Yes it is too ornate and really busy but well worth looking at it.

The Basilica is large and detailed within. There is a lot of sculpture, relief and glasswork. Audio reference is also provided for those that wish it

This basilica was grand but it's heavy baroque style in such a small space was overwhelming. You could actually get close to the Holy Relics so that was very amazing. We got there late and it was almost ready to close. The lady working was so incredibly nice that she let us go through it anyway. We were able to... More
