The carmelite church is built in the ...

The Carmelite church is built in the plaza of the same name, in the northern part of the historic center of Valencia. It is the parish of the Holy Cross which has its roots in the thirteenth century, during the conquest of Valencia by James I. The king created fourteen parishes throughout the city. The first church, which was also a convent, was consecrated in 1343, and a beautiful domed bell that made visible from afar. Now the monastery belongs to the Museum of Modern Art Valencian and exhibits works for exhibitions. The Carmelite church has always been modified to have a Baroque style in the seventeenth century, but the works were stopped with the death of architect Carmelite. The Virgen del Carmen is depicted on the cover, a work by the artist Minguez. There are within the church a small oval chapel Our Lady of Carmen, classical style. The church is being restored to its old style, representative of the Valencian architecture of the time, as the church of San Martín or of the Saint Johns.

La iglesia del carmen está construida en la plaza del mismo nombre, en la parte norte del casco histórico de Valencia.
Es la parroquia de la Santisima Cruz que tiene sus raíces en el siglo XIII, durante la conquista de Valencia por Jaume I. El rey creó catorce parroquias en toda la ciudad.
La primera iglesia, que era también un convento, se consagró en 1343, con domos y un precioso campanario que la hacían visible desde lejos. Ahora el convento pertenece al museo valenciano de arte moderno y expone obras durante exposiciones temporales.
La iglesia del Carmen ha sido siempre modificadas, hasta tener un estilo barroco en el siglo XVII, pero las obras se pararon con la muerte del arquitecto carmelita.
La Virgen del Carmen está representada en la portada, una obra del artista Minguez.
Hay dentro de la iglesia una pequeña capilla oval de Nuestra Señora del Carmen, de estilo clasicista.
La iglesia está siendo restaurada en su antiguo estilo, representante de la arquitectura valenciana de la época, como la iglesia de San Martín o la de los Santos Juanes.
