On the site of the destroyed temple at the initiative of the daughter of Governor sebastián Duarte (Sebastián Duarte) Anna Duarte i Donoso and this chapel was built, as evidenced by a memorial plaque.

Very close was my sleeping place, Casa Juanita on the map. A nice place, the only downside - the room was cool, the heater was only in the bathroom, and the blanket was thin, I had to sleep in thermal underwear.
Dropping my backpack, I went for a walk through the amazing light, white city. Usually, the narrow streets of ancient cities look a little gloomy, even on a Sunny day, but this can not be said about Peniscola.
