Above photo - entrance to the church.
After taking the city from the Moors in 1238 a group of Knights started on the construction of this church.
The door of the church dates to 1255AD
As a service was being performed at the time of our visit we did not take any photos of the inside of the church.
The church is operated by the Opus Dei who prefer to perform Mass in Latin.
Below is a photo of the door way to the Church of Saint Joseph of the Hospital.
