8 Baroque Valencia

Santos Juanes Church

Iglesia de San Juan del Mercado, de los Santos Juanes.
(Lateral entrance to the Church of Saint John of the Market,
or Santos Juanes Church). It is a characteristic entrance,
applied in the 17th century to a gothic building which was
faced and refaced according to the changes in baroque
taste. After surviving two serious fires, a baroque pinnacle
was added until, after 1653, the temple underwent both
exterior and interior alterations (with a series of statues by
the Italians Bertessi and Ponzanelli).
