  • Iglesia de los Santos Juanes is located in the heart of the old town, market square, opposite the Silk Exchange building and central market. If you have decided to come to Valencia, then be sure to visit this symbolic place. Accordingly, see and this magnificent Church, which was built in the 13th century on the site of an old mosque. The Church complex fate: she experienced several massive fires. The first two happened in the 14th century, after which the Church was rebuilt in the original gothic style. Following the fire happened at the end of the 16th century, and the Church, including its interior, rebuilt in Baroque style. The last time the church burned during the civil war in 1936 year. In 1858 year acquired the status of Royal after visiting the Queen Isabella II. The temple four façades. The most impressive looks that overlooks the market square. It is decorated with bas-reliefs, as well as an elegant clock tower and statues of Saints. The three remaining façade look more modestly. The Church has a lush baroque interior with mouldings, carvings and numerous large sculptures. In the center of the gilded wooden altar. Above the vault paintings worked court painter Antonio Palomino, who at the turn of the 17th-18th centuries participated in the decoration of several major Churches of Valencia. Unfortunately, most of his frescoes were destroyed by a fire the year 1936 and still not restored.
