Church · Tourist Spot
Admire the owe-inspiring frescos that cover the walls and ceiling of Parroquia de San Nicolas de Bari y San Pedro Martir, dubbed the "Sistine Chapel of Valencia." Built in the 13th century, the simple church of Saint Nicholas parish was refurbished in Gothic style in the 15th century, but it's the lavishly decorated interior--with Baroque ornaments and frescoes depicting the lives of St. Nicholas and St. Peter--that receives the most attention from the tourists. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the city center, far from the bustle of the central street, the church is accessible via a narrow passageway. Parroquia de San Nicolas de Bari y San Pedro Martir is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
