Coming soon… Santos Juanes Church

In January 2019, the agreement was signed between the Hortensia Herrero Foundation and the Archbishopric of Valencia for the restoration of the Santos Juanes Church, declared a National Historic and Artistic Monument by Decree of 21/02/1947.

The restoration will take place on two levels. On the one hand, the restoration of the frescoes on the vault of the temple, by Antonio Palomino, will be carried out by the team led by Professor Pilar Roig, lecturer in the Department of Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Property and researcher at the University Institute of Heritage Restoration of the UPV. On the other hand, the architectural work aims to remedy the structural and constructive deficiencies to ensure conservation of the building, including its façades. This work will be directed by architect Carlos Campos.

The budget for the works amounts to six million euros and costs are to be covered by the Hortensia Herrero Foundation. The effective implementation of the works will start in the last quarter of the year 2020 and will finish in 2024.
