Lonely Planet review
East of the Basílica de Sant Francesc along Carrer del Temple, you can make out what was once a medieval Arab gate, the Porta del Temple. Stroll through the gate and down a quiet lane, at the end of which is the atrium of an early Gothic chapel, known as the Temple, built by the Knights Templars who once occupied the site.
Getting into the chapel itself is a matter of luck – generally it is closed. If you manage it, you can admire two Romanesque chapels on either side as you enter. Following on from them is a beguilingly simple, early Gothic single nave.
