The church of San Juan De Dios (Saint John of God) is worth seeing for the outside alone.

Inside are examples of 17th Century paintings and sculptures, with a silver box containing the remains of San Juan de Dios (See my Hospital of San Juan de Dios tip for more info about him)

Baroque style, having 2 towers with spires on the front facade, and a further attractive dome. These are all decorated with distinctive green and white tiles.

Above the entrance is a stone statue of a figure (who I assume is San Juan) above which are a crest and a couple of carved angels.
