General Guided Combined

We invite you to know the history of a spectacular monument Santos Juanes has always had a strong popular character and among his parishioners highlighted the high concentration of guilds, perhaps for which he turned out to be the richest.It is one of the largest churches in Valencia and its history has been marked by the evolution of the city itself.

Meet one of the first churches in the city whose origins date back to the 13th century

The church of Saints Johns is also popularly known as “Saint John of the Market” because of its location next to the market area. This square, already in the 13th century, was the main open space in the city and civic center par excellence.

The deep Baroque redecoration also spans the outside, and the three doorways are renewed using a Baroque language. Also noteworthy on its own is the rear façade which overlooks the Market Square. Designed by 1700 as a magnificent stone altarpiece over a terrace, it became a place to perform religious plays.

Interesting facts on its history

Different historical events give the Parish of Saints Johns an added value. The first sermon of Saint Vincent Ferrer in the city, in 1410, is located in this church. There is a belief that it was in the chapel of Saint Anthony of Padua where the valencian tenebrist painter Francisco Ribalta (1565-1628) was buried. The “pardal de Sant Joan” (Saint John’s bird) is another interesting fact. That is the name for the vane put on top of the façade depicting the eagle of the Apocalypse and, according to the tradition, children were told to look at it when their humble parents abandoned them in the square.


Santos Juanes is an accessible space for people with reduced mobility. There is information available for people with hearing disabilities.
