“Interesting and very appreciable place.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Culturally and architecturally is a great spot to visit, impossible to miss it in the historic center of the city, what was once a mosque today is very visible the beautiful bell tower, quite different from the most common bell that we all know, in fact it thanks to its shape resembles very much like a minaret to remember the past of what was once a mosque.
Interesting place and absolutely not to be missed

“Church in the town center with Arab origins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

San Nicolás is built in a place where there was a Mosque until medieval times. The church tower still shows reminiscence of its base, an arab minarete. Truly the actual town center.
