The Assumption Church
Structure and Interest
It has a Latin cross plan inscribed in a rectangle. In the exterior, there is a noteworthy venerated niche on top of the door of the chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary. It has an image of Sant Roc, in modern style. Inside the church, we must point out the images of Our Lady –a polychromatic sculpture of the Assumption- and, next to it, saints Vicent Ferrer and Vicent Màrtir, both patron saints of the city of Valencia.
Style: Measured baroque (18th c.)
It rises on the spot where the old Sant Roc hermit stood, the hospital and a few houses. It was severely damaged during the Napoleonic or War of the French (19th c.), the Independence War and it was rebuilt in 1939.
