Discover a beautiful historic centre crowned with a magnificent church that will take you back to the 14th century.

Situated in Jérica, Santa Águeda is a magnificent church that was built in 1385. The infante Don Martín commissioned the work and donated his palace and grounds to it. By 1396, the building was being used as a place of worship. Later, in the 17th century, the Gothic church was renovated, including the addition of the Baroque façade. Over the centuries, particularly during the Civil War, the church was severely damaged. A series of restoration and reconstruction work has been undertaken to give the church its current appearance. The interior comprises a central nave lined with chapels and the exterior is defined by buttresses.
