  Inside St Mary the Crowned
by bugalugs

This church is built on land that used to be a mosque. Kind Ferdinand and Queen Isabella bought the bells and the clock for the 100 foot tower which are still there today.
The church used to be a lot larger and actually crossed Main Street but because of damage in the Great Siege it had to be partly rebuilt and was set back a lot. Apparently some human remains have been found on Main Street in front of the church when roadworks have been carried out.


Main Street

From Casemates Square head up Main Street and the church is on the left hand side.
