Start your exploration of Jérica at this pretty church that has been a place of worship for many centuries.

La Sangre de Cristo church in Jérica is thought to have originally been the old San Jorge church, which is documented in the 14th century, and which is thought, in turn, to have been built upon the old Arab mosque. The church you can see today is Baroque in style, has a rectangular layout and one nave that maintains the Neoclassical appearance of the renovation work from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The first mention we have of La Sangre de Cristo church is in Informe de la Diócesis de Segorbe, dating to 1656. This place of worship, combined with the many other historic sites in the town, make Jérica well worth a visit.

Once you’ve finished visiting La Sangre de Cristo church, take a look at Torre de la Alcudia, a Mudejar-style Gothic belltower that is truly one-of-a-kind. You could then wander through the historic centre to the military Gothic style Arco del Hospital, which was part of a hospital for people who had fallen on hard times. And then walk up to the castle or to Vuelta de la Hoz to get a sense of the local scenery.

Before you leave, make sure you try pastel jericano, a sweet treat combining layers of crumbly puff pastry, lemon curd and creamy meringue encased in chocolate. With all this and more to experience, what are you waiting for? Start planning your getaway today.
