Plaza del Mercado, s/n; 46001 – Valencia
The church was originally built as a hermitage on the site of an old mosque in 1240. It had to be reconstructed in the 14th and 16th centuries due fire damage. Its baroque style dates back to the end of the 17th and the beginning of the 18th centuries. Exterior reforms began in 1700. The main façade, looking out on the Plaza del Mercado and facing the Lonja, and has become a meeting point, it was given special attention creating a reredos in which the central figure of the Virgen del Rosario stands out. The ‘campana i horari’ clock is located in the centre. The weathercock also catches the eye, known as the “Pardal de Sant Joan” due to its sparrow-like figure. The church is classified as a National Historic and Artistic Monument.
