I visited this place as part of my combined ticket with the Alcazaba next door so, being aged, the ticket only cost 3e, a bargain. Do not expect a working church because it was deconsecrated back in the 1940’s so is now an empty shell. It’s interest is in its great age and the frescoes around the walls. I found it fascinating but then I’m a history buff and am not looking for an ‘experience’ in places like this.

We visited the church on Tuesday afternoon when access is free and were struck by the unusual frescoes of a warrior nun, as well as other unusual decorations. Eventually I discovered on the Internet that this church is no longer used as a church and the interior was transformed into a TV set for filming a Netflix series. More info is available on the Internet about this but Tripadvisor doesn't allow me to put the link which is a link to a newspaper article . It would have been appropriate to put some sort of sign up to explain this fact to visitors! Nevertheless the architecture of the church, position and views make it worth a visit on the free day or with the combined ticket to the castle.

You can admire the exterior of the church without paying, the views of the surrounding countryside are lovely. You can buy a ticket to see the church or buy a combined ticket with the Alcazaba to see both attractions. I recommend viewing of the Church roof from the Alcazaba. The inside of the church is unusual, a careful examination of the rooms, decorations, and balcony is worthwhile. The coloring of the walls, the classic columns, and the paintings are not typical but attractive.

We visited outside opening hours but were able to walk around the exterior of the building and admire the architecture. It is in a pleasant and well-maintained section of the town with great views out over the surrounding countryside. I think the entry ticket can be combined with access to the fortress.

Beautiful, preserved frescoes, nice temple. La Tarasca medio sierpe medio dama controlling a seven-heads dragon like seven sins. She reminded a little Daenerys of the game of thrones (not meant wrong). Valid here ticket to Alcazaba. I recommend. More – travel video youtube PSISvisit. Iva + Petr CZ.
