The Monastery of San Jerónimo and the Basilica of San Juan de Dios are the most renowned religious buildings in this part of Granada. Founded by the Catholic Monarchs, the Monastery of San Jerónimo is a Renaissance structure consisting of a church and a monastery. Of note in this complex is the Mannerist altarpiece in the main chapel. Just two minutes away is the Basilica of San Juan de Dios, a veritable jewel of Baroque art from the mid-18th century. Its most valuable works include gold and silver ornaments.
