Iglesia de San Juan del Hospital
The San Juan del Hospital church is located between two of the most popular squares found in Valencia's old quarter: Plaza San Vicente Ferrer and Plaza de Nápoles y Sicilia. You can access the church from La Paz street. The building was originally gothic in style, though there are hardly any remaining traces of this early architecture left, though it is still an interesting visit. One noteworthy feature in particular is the Saint Barbara side-chapel inside.
The only entrance to the church is very easy to pass by, but as you enter, directly on the left wall is the original paintings of the Crosses from the Crusades from when they first came and took over the city. That leads you into a nice outdoor courtyard. The inside of the church is very similar to many found in Valencia. By far my favorite church in Valencia (and we visted a lot). I enjoyed services there more than I did the main cathedral. Its not easy to find, so you may want to get specific directions before you head off in search of it.
