The church of San Nicolas

The church of San Nicolás de Bari and San Pedro Mártir, also known as the Sistine Chapel of Valencia, is a religious centre that was created in Valencia’s golden century, that is, in the 15th century. As the years went by, it was enlarged and adapted to all the new architectural styles of the time, thus forging its identity. This place of worship has Romanesque and Gothic influences, but the Baroque style of its interiors predominates above all, where the ceilings of the domes are painted in the purest style of Michelangelo, the famous Italian painter.

During the Spanish Civil War, it was used as a warehouse and storehouse for merchandise, a period in which this church suffered several looting operations, such as the looting of the bells. After the end of the conflict, restoration work began, which lasted many years, and today it is listed as one of the most beautiful churches in the city of Valencia.
