Overview

This church is situated in the city's old quarter near the Puerta de Bisagra. It is also known as the Church of Santiago del Arrabal, Arrabal meaning old town. An obvious example of Mudéjar architecture, it was constructed in the eleventh century. The separate bell tower occupies what was formerly the minaret of the mosque which occupied the same site. The church is only open during worship, but can be visited. The pulpit was once used by the fourteenth century Dominican monk Vicente Ferrer in his harangues against the Jews in the late Middle Ages.
