Church Of St. Nicholas

The Iglesia de San Nicolás de Bari y San Pedro. (Church
of St Nicholas, also dedicated to St Peter) was first raised
in the mid-13th century, but later became one of the first
churches founded after Jaime the I’s conquest of the city.
It was built on ground occupied by a mosque, and this
underwent major changes.
The first was executed in 1455 and involved the extension
of the building towards the foot of the church, eliminating
the cemetery.
