Neighborhood: Picarral

This church stands on the same foundations where the main Jewish Synagogue used to be in medieval Zaragoza. The synagogue was converted into a chapel, but destroyed in 1574. In the 16th century a church was constructed, which was renovated in the 18th century, particularly the interior. This church has the most colorful and sumptuous baroque in the city. San Carlos belonged to the Jesuits until they were expelled in 1767 whereupon it became a seminary. The seminary still has a splendid library with many old books. Admission is free.
