Create an itinerary including Parroquia de San Nicolas de Bari y San Pedro Martir
Admire the owe-inspiring frescos that cover the walls and ceiling of Parroquia de San Nicolas de Bari y San Pedro Martir, dubbed the "Sistine Chapel of Valencia." Built in the 13th century, the simple church of Saint Nicholas parish was refurbished in Gothic style in the 15th century, but it's the lavishly decorated interior--with Baroque ornaments and frescoes depicting the lives of St. Nicholas and St. Peter--that receives the most attention from the tourists. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the city center, far from the bustle of the central street, the church is accessible via a narrow passageway. Parroquia de San Nicolas de Bari y San Pedro Martir is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Nice place but with expensive tickets. I recommend to rent the electronic guide for example in english. Unfortunately there is lack of polish language.

  • A fantastic place. Beautiful inside. You will have to check where it us before you go and allow plenty of time to enjoy the recorded tour which guides you around the wall to wall art and decoration in this amazing place. It has been fully restored to its original glory and you will find a feast for the eyes on every wall and ceiling. If you go to Valencia this beautiful church is a must see. It's a hidden gem in the heart of the city.
  • The entry to this church is down narrow alley which could easily be missed when looking for it. But what you will find is absolutely stunning & well worth the visit. The restoration of this church, due to candle smoke, has been compared to that of the Sistine Chapel, Rome. The audio guide is very good so take your earphones as on our visit it was accessed via a QR Code.
