Santos Juanes Chapel


Albocàsser

Joan de Brusca ordered its construction. It’s dedicated to John the Baptist and John the Evangelist. It’s located outside the walls of the former primitive population centre. Some of the attractions of the chapel are its architecture, its plan is representative of the style of the Christian reconquest; its altarpiece (crafted by Pere Lembrí) which has a Gothic style (early 15th century), a wood carving of John the Baptist (early 14th century), as well as the sepulchre of Joan de Brusca.
