The Temple

We can´t specify the exact date of the first church dedicated to the Saint Patron, but there are some documents that are evidence of its existence in 1317. Throughout the centuries it suffers some repairing and modifications but its location is always the same, the present one, the one called Saint Mark´s Arcade.

Between 1901 and 1904 the Saint George´s waiting vicarage is created and it is occupied by D. Leonardo Pérez Ferrándiz. It is in this period of time when the temple is threatening into ruins and it is thought about the possibility of knocking it down completely and building another new one. On 20th June 1913 the archbishop of Valence gives permission for its demolition and a commission is appointed for its new construction, formed by important art and culture men, among them, Fernando Cabrera Cantó, the artistic advisor ´San Jorge´ Association by then and the architects Timoteo Briet Montagud and Vicente Pascual Pastor. In 1921 the new, splendid church is blessed after the painter Fernando Cabrera Cantó finished the painting against the presbytery wall.
