Saint John of Dios Church, La Iglesia de San Juan de Dios

The Church of Saint John of God is the second of two twin churches on Avenida Hidalgo (the first of the twins is the Iglesia de la Santa Vercruz or Church of the True Holy Cross), right in front of the Alameda Park. The Facade of San Juan de Dios faces la Iglesia de la Santa Veracruz, and both churches are roughly simetrical forming a very estetic ensamble for people strolling in the Alameda Park and facing north.

Here is the wooden doorway and Stone scultured facade of Saint John of God

Sitting down by on of the twin fountains in the little Plaza de la Santa Veracruz.
I am facing in the direction of the Church of the Holy Veracruz, which you do not see. What you do see is the twin Church of San Juan de Dios, behind me on the left and the red color building was once the Hospital of the Order of San Juan de la Cruz but today is the Museo Franz Mayer.
