Iglesia de San Juan

Church in Daroca

Not generally open to the public, but no matter…what makes this church important (and interesting) is the delineation of its architecture. On the semi-circular apse, you can clearly see the line where the builders switched from Romanesque grey stone to terracotta brick and finished building the church in a Mudéjar style. The switch came in the middle of the 13th century, making this one of the earliest examples of Mudéjar architecture in Aragón.
