  • The old Parish Church of San Juan Bautista de Aranda de Duero is located on a small hill next to the rivers Douro and Banuelos. Its origin is associated with the birth of the villa and its walls were important events in the daily course of the town, as the "second Arandense", held in this church the year 1473. This museum sacred hosts parts of extraordinary value artistic, exposing to the public part of the heritage religious of the Diocese of Aranda of Douro. St. John's Church was built between the 14th and 15th centuries on an ancient Romanesque temple. Visitors enter through a sober cover Gothic, formed by nine archivolts and an image of San Juan Bautista, owner of the temple. Gothic art breathes throughout the Church, except for the chapel of the Calderonas, with an interesting Renaissance altarpiece. Also highlights the high altar, one of the first neoclassical retables of the region covered, in part, by general don Antonio Gutiérrez, winner of Nelson in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and baptized in this temple on May 15, 1729.
