How it started

Little is known of the primitive Romanesque church that existed before its Gothic renovations between 1419 and 1455, which were begun at the initiative of the then rector of the parish, Alfonso de Borja, future bishop of Valencia and future pope Calixtus III. The church has a single nave with six sections, five fairly shallow side chapels between the buttresses, of which there are six on each side, two of them are occupied by the side entrance doors, and a polygonal presbytery facing east, preceded by a straight section. The nave is covered with a simple ribbed vault which was constructed in this period. An interesting fact is that the construction of the church was begun at the west end rather than with the Apse, which is where the construction of churches normally begins. The reason for this is that the original parish cemetery was covered during renovations and had to be cleared before anything could be built on it.
