Iglesia del Salvador

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This church was built on the site of the former Mezquita Mayor in Albaicín. The courtyard for ablutions, the remains of some columns and a very deep cistern all still remain. The Iglesia del Salvador was one of two churches in the whole of Granada that had the right to grant asylum. The cloister was used to hang up the so-called sambenitos (traditional penitential garments) worn by those Moors whom the Inquisition had forced to repent. These garments had previously been displayed in the Cathedral.

The church houses a number of artistic treasures including the painting of the Last Supper by Bocanegra, and a statue of Christ, ‘Señor de la Sangre’, by Pedro Duque de Cornejo dating back to the 17th century.
