    I find that the Church of the Catalans is a must for many points of view: located right in the city centre and is close to other monuments, perhaps the most famous, but above all it is one of the few buildings that survived the earthquake of 1908. Always known to the amazement of people when I say this, and the first question I asked is: what is the difference with the current road surface? When I say "rubble" people really realizes what he means the earthquake in the life of the city. The Church is a wonderful example of Arab-Byzantine art, beautiful both outside and inside. Unfortunately it's not always open and should inquire before opening hours.
