Iglesia San Nicolas de Bari

Castellón de la Plana Spain

The church is on the site of an old Islamic mosque, when it was converted to a Catholic church in 1535 it was used as a hermitage to catechize Muslim converts. Over the centuries it has been altered inside and out. The church receives many visitors, especially on Mondays, because of the Caminatas of three Mondays St. Nicholas tradition. The Feast of St. Nicholas, December 6, is celebrated with high mass, a procession, distribution of bread and more.
