My wife and I went to see the San Gines Church because we were walking on Calle Arenal. We always enjoy this church because it has many beautiful religious paintings that have been restored.

Nice small church. Worth entering and have a look around. Beggar sitting in front of the church doesn't add to a nice experience but still :-) Glad that I entered :-)

Very nice small church. One of the oldest, but reconstructed in 19th century. The church has a nice altarpiece.
