Parroquia de San Nicolás de Bari y San Pedro Mártir

The Church of San Nicolás de Bari and San Pedro Mártir has recently been restored, revealing a pictorial display that experts have called the Valencian "Sistine Chapel". It is amongst the first twelve Christian parish churches in the city of València following the reconquest of Jaume I in 1238.
