The church of Our Lady El Portillo stands in Plaza Portillo by the bullring. It is a baroque building dating back to the 18th century. There is speculation that there might have been a Middle Age church or small sanctuary on the same foundations. This church has three naves and is huge and bulky. The Heroines Chapel must be mentioned: it is dedicated to three Zaragozan women who defended the city against the French invader: Agustina de Aragón, Casta Alvarez, Manuela Sancho. For this reason 5 February, Santa Agueda (the patron of women) day, Zaragozan women come to worship.
