The house where Saint Juan de Dios died and which today is the Archive-Museum of the Hospital Order.

The Casa de los Pisa was built by the Pisa family shortly after the conquest of Granada by the Catholic Kings in 1492. They were a wealthy family and held important positions such as Alderman and Officers of the Court among others. The family welcomed Juan de Dios into their home where he dies on 8 March 1550.
When the Pisa family disappeared in the mid-19th century, the building was bought by the Hospital Order of San Juan de Dios in 1927 as it was considered one of the finest items of his heritage. The Archive-Museum of San Juan de Dios, the cultural centre of the Hospital Order, is located there. It was established in 1931 and it is run by the Provincia Bética. Its main aim is to guarantee the knowledge and the conservation of the cultural heritage of the Hospital Order, which has developed and been transmitted throughout history, with the aim of spreading the wealth of information for pastoral, scientific and didactic purposes. There is a residence for the elderly next to the centre which cares for 85 pensioners and where the hospital work of San Juan de Dios continues.
