Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Aragon / Province of Zaragoza / Zaragoza / Iglesia de Santa Maria Magdalena
Built on the remains of a 12th-century Romanesque church, Iglesia de Santa Maria Magdalena today blends influences of several architectural styles. The 14th-century structure that replaced it was built in the Muéjar style, intricately decorated with fine lines and white and green tiles. Renovations in the 17th and 18th centuries blended in a Baroque style, as evidenced by the interior--including the high altar and gilt statue of the immaculate. The church features a polygonal apse and bell tower. Decorative ogival arches and cross-forming quadrangular motifs resemble the Aljafería Palace, a further nod to other architectural styles.

We already wanted to. This Church is within the Aragonese Mudejar, consists of a single nave of simple crossing, currently hidden from the Baroque reform. Headboard with 7 sides in apse, without buttresses to the outside with small side chapels. A magnificent organ that you can't see for now. It has suffered throughout history various and important restorations. The spectacular tower is similar to almohads, 2 square bodies concentric and between them the staircase with rappel of approximation or false vault, outside 3 separate bodies decorated with white and green glazed ceramic. The views of this part of the city are very nice. The explanations provided by the guide help to understand the role he played in the city in the different moments of history. It has to the outside 2 side doors at this time of which only 1 is in use, the other is hidden behind an altar.
The flamboyant bell tower is situated in the old town not far from the cathedral not as shown on some of the street plans a good 20 min walk away. The mudejar bell tower stands proud and worth a look. more »
Restored and opened on the 17th February.
