Description

Stone, wood and paintings live in harmony in this simple church, the oldest in Daroca and one of the most unusual in Aragon.

Work on construction began on the apse of dressed stone, as is common in Romanesque art; but half-way through, Mudejar architects took over the work and abandoned stone for their traditional bare brick, with which they completed the church.
It is modest in size, with a single nave, a chapel on each side of the transept (14th century), a presbytery and apse. An atrium forms the main doorway. Inside, the nave is covered with a wooden roof.
The apse is decorated with five blind arches, over which there are remains of some of the Gothic mural paintings (14th century) that used to cover it entirely. An image of Saint John can be seen, and over it, an extended representation of the Last Supper.
