Campo del Principe

Campo del Príncipe

The Campo del Príncipe square was once the centre of the Granada’s Jewish quarter. The square was built in 1497 for the wedding celebrations of Isabel and Ferdinand's son Juan although he was actually married in Cantabria. The focal point of Campo de Príncipe is the jasper and alabaster statue of Cristo de los Favores which dates from 1640. Nowadays, every Holy Friday crowds gather silently around the statue of Cristo de los Favores at 3pm to ask for three wishes.
