Plaza Juan Antonio Benlliure - C/ José Aguirre
Gothic. It comprises a short, rectangular-shaped nave,
originally based on a basilican ground plan, covered by a
double roof on beams supported by a series of pointed
diaphragm arches, primitive prototypes.
This type of construction originated from replicas of
Roman “shipyards” and is in some ways similar to the
paleo-Christian architecture of the Near East.
