Parroquia de San Nicolás

By 8 November, 2019November 28th, 2023Best Monuments

Let me take you on a visit to the beautiful Parroquia de San Nicolás Valencia. The Capilla Sixtine Valenciana is a real feast for the eyes, a hidden gem!

The frescoes in the church of San Nicolas de Valencia have regained their splendor after three years of restoration. A project coordinated by the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), in collaboration with the parish itself and the funding Hortensia Herrero Foundation.

They have restored 1,904 square meters of painted surface,

800 square meters of the Sistine Chapel

In addition to the paintings in the nave, the chapels, facades and windows have also been restored.

The restoration included the frescoes of the nave, designed by Antonio Palomino and executed between 1694 and 1701 by his pupil Dionís Vidal. In total, about 1,800 square meters of painted surface, divided into arches, lunettes, pilasters, vaulted atrium and with all kinds of problems: baggy, loss of cohesion, missing and repainting. The work was carried out with the advice of the director of the last restoration of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, Gianluigi Colalucci.

The architectural and pictorial-ornamental intervention carried out in the last three years in the central church of St. Nicholas was the most important to date at international level, both for the magnitude of the work and for the techniques used.
