A much-altered church that seems to have suffered greatly in the Spanish Civil War with parts of the structure and the artwork dating from after that time. The highly decorated façade is impressive. If you take the audio tour, you need to go and stand...More

Started about 1300, but the facade is from 1600 and perfect on this extraordinary square (The Molina). Inside it is very large, imposing, restored with different styes from gothic to Renaissance. Please also have a look at the Chapel : Christo de la Yedra.

The variation in the design and decoration of this three-story palace which served as residence for nobility, convent, and seat of local government made it possible to appreciate the characteristic features of Renaissance architecture.

It's not a must see, but if you're here and it's open it's worth a peek. I particularly enjoyed the cloister area and the intricate scroll work on the gates.
