Iglesia de San Juan Evangelista

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This parish church was listed as a Monument of National Interest.  It is dedicated to St John the Evangelist and was built in 1560. It is one of the most interesting examples of religious architecture in the time of the repopulation of Granada especially in the Valle de Lecrín. It was burned down during the Moorish revolts, and the original façade had to be rebuilt in the late 16th century by Antonio López Camudio.

In its structure you can find Moorish, Renaissance and Baroque elements. The church houses a number of interesting artistic works including a Virgin by the Alonso Cano School, a Baroque altarpiece, a Baroque figure of Christ from Peru and the ancient organ.
