Iglesia de Santa Justa y Rufina


by pixel2013

"Visigothic in origin"

This ancient church is near Toledo's central plaza, the Zocodover. Various architectural styles are combined within the building. The sixteenth century church was built around a still-standing Visigoth chapel dating from the tenth century. It plays an important role in the celebration of Easter in Toledo. Various Christian brotherhoods store their pasos (statues representing scenes from the Passion which are paraded through the streets during Easter) here. One of these organisations, the Brotherhood of Sacred Charity, was founded in the eleventh century during Alfonso VI's seige of the city. It aimed to provide a decent burial for both Muslims and Christians who died in battle.
