Churches and museums

Museo Catedralicio Donum Fidei

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This museum has two rooms dedicated to painting, three explaining the origins of the Diocese of Guadix, and two others showing a selection of artefacts from the Catholic liturgy.

The painting rooms have a magnificent Dolorosa and a Maternidad that was part of a larger canvas depicting the Flight into Egypt.

The second area takes the visitor on an artistic journey through the general history of the Catholic Church, also focusing particularly on the Diocese of Guadix. It includes statues of St Peter and St Paul, relics of San Torcuato, historical documents as well as portraits of some of the most important bishops of the diocese.

The former Chapter House houses some of the best pieces by artists of the second generation of the Granada School, including José de Mora, Torcuato Ruiz del Peral and José Risueño. This is a real trove of sculptures and paintings of Granada.

The last area shows artefacts used during religious ceremonies, some of which are hugely creative and artistic.
