The Church of San Juan del Hospital, located in Valencia, Spain, is an architectural treasure with deep historical roots. It is an outstanding example of Mediterranean Gothic architecture. It preserves elements from the Roman, Caliphate, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Highlights include the 13th century mural paintings in the chapel of St. Michael the Archangel, the medieval cemetery with its funerary chapel and the remains of the spina of the Roman Circus of ancient Valentia.

The church also played a crucial role as the seat of the Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, focused on the care of the sick and pilgrims, underlining its relevance in the history of healthcare. Today, it still fulfills the same function for which it was built, it is a place of worship and catechesis.

The Church of San Juan del Hospital is not only an architectural landmark, but also a testimony of medieval hospital dedication. Its artistic value and its connection to charitable care make it a site of great cultural and spiritual importance. This church has transcended the centuries, maintaining its commitment to charity and serving as a place of artistic contemplation and spirituality in the heart of Valencia.
