Valencia, Spain (2) – Iglesia San Juan del Hospital

Iglesia San Juan del Hospital is the oldest church in Valencia.  Located next door to popular Iglesia de Santo Tomas with the crowded line-ups of people, we opted to visit this church instead.  Founded by the military order of the hospitable Knight of San Juan de Jerusalem.   It served as a hospital, cemetery and church in the original construction in 1238.
