Cloister, St. Peter’s Church
Built in the second half of the XIV, it is one of four remaining Mudéjar cloisters in Aragon today, although this particular cloister is only partially in its original state.
The cloister, which connects to the church from the right side, is south-facing and features a square design carried out with brick. There are three rounded arches through which the original Mudéjar brickwork can still be seen.
The cloister, which was used to display the mummies of theAmantes of Teruel, has undergone several reforms throughout the centuries, leaving it very changed from its original state. Perhaps one of the greatest changes occurred at the beginning of the XX century, when the original floor was dropped and the space was covered with plaster and decorated in a neogothic style.
The most recent restoration, completed in 2008, was led by architects Antonio Pérez and José María Sanz. Their vision and care helped solidify the cultural and touristic importance of the cloister, and contributed to its becoming a part of theAmantes’ Tour.
