San Juan Bautista Church

The parish church of San Juan Bautista contains the main archetypes of Berzocana. Its origins are lost when these places were Christianized from Trujillo in the first centuries of the religion of Jesus. His cult is maintained after the fall of the Empire and the Germanic invasions of Suevos and Visigoths.

It is a jewel of art, declared a Historic-Artistic Monument since 1977, it represents the best values of the Spanish Renaissance.

These lands witnessed the struggles between Leovigild and his son St. Hermenegild protected by his uncles Saints Fulgentius, Florentina, Isidore and a whole Trinitarian family: some of them will end up here with their bones when the Islamic invasion of 711. The temple was restored in the 16th century mainly by bishops Vargas Carvajal and Ponce de León.


In 1610 the chapel of the Saints was inaugurated, reliquary of the Spains where his remains have not ceased to be sought by the faithful of Cartagena to have been there as bishop San Fulgencio who became patron of the diocese of Plasencia. The sepulcher is made of alabaster and contains the relics of Saint Fulgencio and Saint Florentina, patron saints of this town and of the diocese of Plasencia.


It is a marvel of the late Gothic Renaissance, younger sister of Santa María la Mayor de Trujillo. The choir loft is an audacity to balance and its eighteenth-century organ is a jewel of excellent sonority and quality.


It is organized in three naves of equal height and separated by six slender fasciated pillars over which star-shaped ribbed vaults are raised. The tower is Mudejar of the s. XIV memory of the primitive brick and masonry church.

Declared a national Historic-Artistic Monument by decree of 28-10-1977.
