Church of San Juan Bautista

The Church of San Juan Bautista is the oldest church in the city. In 1152 the Order of the Hospital of St. John built a chapel over the old mosque. The second church built at the site was a Romanesque church built at the end of the 12th century. The third church came in the 14th century when a new nave and side chapels were constructed to give the church a Gothic appearance. This was demolished in 1868 to enlarge the square and a new church with the Neo-Gothic style was built by Julio de Saracibar and Celestino Capmany and opened for worship in 1895. During the Spanish Civil War in 1936 the church was set on fire and destroyed. It was rebuilt and finished in 1944. The church has recently been restored and new lighting has been placed in the church, the walls have been cleaned as well as the stained glass rose windows.
