Hospital – San Juan de Dios Church

The Hospital – San Juan de Dios Church is located in C/ Corredera (Corredera Street), near the Granary, the San Miguel Church and just before the Slope of Bethlehem (Old Jerez Gate) in the monumental town of Arcos de la Frontera, Cadiz, Andalusia.

In the sixteenth century it was created as the hospital of San Sebastián, attached to a hermitage, and in 1596 all hospitals in Arcos were merged into it. It features a harmonious patio of columns with a rich baroque staircase.

Inside the church stand out: the unguided altarpiece of Flanders pine, a baroque piece of 1735; the image of Cristo de la Veracruz fashioned by Antón Vázquez in 1545, with gothic reminders; the image of Nuestra Señora de la Angustia, a relief which was shown at the Ibero-American Exhibition in Seville in 1929.
