Constructed around 1261, this Gothic church is one of the oldest in the city and is believed to be the first church to be built following the Christian conquest. It has a single nave with a pointed barrel vault ceiling. Visitors can appreciate the beautiful Santa Barbara chapel and other chapels adorned with Gothic-era painted murals while inside.
