In the 13th century The Santa Catalina Church was built on the site of a prior mosque. A lot of the interior had to be rebuilt in 1548 due to a fire, acquiring it´s Baroque style. Today you can still see the 13th century gothic exterior, however it has since been restored in 1785. In 1936 the interior of the Church was vandalized and burned by Republican Militiamen, and then restored and saved as much as possible in the 1950´s.
