Arcedianal de Santiago Church


Declared a National Historic-Artistic Monument.

15th-century Gothic church with an exceptional baptismal font.

The construction of the archdeacon's church of Santiago dates from the 13th century. At the end of the 15th century, work was begun under the patronage of the Medina family to extend the church. These were concluded in the 16th century and involved the introduction of some of the church's most noteworthy Renaissance elements, such as the doorway into the sacristy, the chapter room and the baptismal font. It is one of the most important Gothic-Renaissance sites in the Region of Valencia. Its floor plan has three naves, and there is a beautiful baptismal font in the interior. It was declared a National Historic-Artistic Monument in 1931.
