Iglesia (Church) de los Santos Juanes in Valencia, Spain

Iglesia de los Santos Juanes is one of the oldest in Valencia and is a National Heritage site. When you view Mercado Central and La Lonja you won't be able to miss this impressive church that completes the triangle. Look at it from La Lonja and you will be amazed by the beauy of its elaborate Baroque facade and complexity of its detail. Walk behind it and it becomes something entirely different - an almost deserted, simple, huge and monumental Gothic structure, a ghost-like ambience. A very curious building.

History: the first church was built in 1240 on the site of an old mosque. It was consequently modified in 14th and 16th centuries, with the baroque element appearing in 17th century.
