Royal Hospital

Royal Hospital

The Royal Hospital was founded by the Catholic Monarchs in 1504 to attend to the wounded in the War of Granada. The building started according to the plans of Enrique Egas, in late-Gothic style, but it was Carlos V who entrusted its conclusion to a more Renaissance style. The doorway was not completed until the first half of the XVII Century. Nowadays the building is the centre of the University of Granada, where the rectory and other university services can be found.

It is located between the streets: Real de Cartuja, Ancha de Capuchinos and Hospicio where we can find the entrance to the building. In Moslem times there was here the cemetery "Saad Malik" and after the Christian conquest the site was given up to the city for public use.
