Casa de los Pisa

This is where the saint San Juan de Dios died in 1550. He was a guest of the aristocratic García de Pisa family. The mansion is now headquarters to the charitable order he founded, La Orden de los Hermanos Hospitalarios, as well as a museum and art gallery. The art gallery has an important collection of Flemish paintings, including works by Van Cleve and Gosart. The museum contains relics of the saint himself. You'll find the building behind the Real Chancillería (High Court), just before entering Carrera del Darro. It has a Gothic-style façade with the orders coat-of-arms carved in stone. Inside, stairs from the Moorish-style courtyard lead to an attractive first-floor patio and chapel supported by columns from below. Admission: free

Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation

The Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation is a wonderful way to remember and honor the great painter José María Rodríguez-Acosta. Founded in the year 1941, the foundation is not only a gallery of his greatest works but also serves as a cultural center, which provides a medium and encourages and supports many who are connected to the same profession. The architectural structure of the foundation is also a perfect example of a typical Carmen house. Because of it's sheer magnificence, it is not surprising that the foundation was declared National Monument in the year 1982. Entry only by phone appointment.

Abadía del Sacromonte

There's only one mass per week, on Sunday at midday. The walk out from the Albayz along Camino del Sacromonte is well worth it. This was a popular pilgrimage route during the 17th century and the way was lined with stone crosses. People came to worship at the site where the bones of early Christian martyrs had been found, in an old Roman limekiln. During the guided tour of the Abbey, you'll be taken along underground passages to see where the bodies were found. There's a fabulous collection of religious art, important historical documents and old maps and plans of Granada on display in the museum and other rooms. Come on February 1st, St. Cecil's Day, for the pilgrimage, special mass and outdoor picnic.

Museo de Bellas Artes

Even though it's located on the Alhambra hill, you don't have to be visiting the Alhambra complex to come in here. What you see is a great display of paintings and sculpture with Christian religious themes created by local artists like Alonso Cano, Diego de Siloé, and Pedro de Mena, during the 16th and 17th Centuries. The last rooms show some minor paintings from the 19th and 20th centuries. The museum's library has a specialist collection of books on Renaissance and Baroque art. You'll find it on the second floor of Palacio de Carlos V (Carlos V's Palace).
