Basilica of Our Lady of Sorrows in Granada, Spain

The Baroque façade of this basilica is the masterful work of Bernardo de Mora crafted from Sierra Elvira stone. In the center is the Crucifixion of Jesus created by Francisco Gómez Moreno. It portrays one of the seven anguishes of Our Lady of Sorrows. Construction of this Catholic church began in 1617 and was finished in 1671. Inside is a central nave, four chapels and a sculpted image of the Virgin of Sorrows on the altar beneath an ornate dome. The Spanish name for this patron saint of Granada is Virgen de las Angustias. The religious artwork is carried through the city on the last Sunday of September.
