Iglesia del Perpetuo Socorro

"Located in the heart of the Baroque axis of Granada, the Perpetual Help Church is the headquarters where the congregation of San Felipe Neri was established in Granada in 1671. Of the original complex of five courtyards, only the temple remains, quite transformed in the 19th century due to the confiscation and the French invasion.

On the main façade there is a neo-Renaissance façade. It is worth highlighting the side portal, on the side of the Epistle, embedded in the wall and with hexagonal columns. This characteristic is closer to the South American Baroque than to the Granada, perhaps due to the continuous movement of the Oratory's fathers. "
