Description: In the 15th century a hostel was built for catholic pilgrims from Europe, by monks belonging to a Franciscan order. From the 16th century and onwards the place has been considered the home of Joseph of Arimathea mentioned in the New Testament. Following the discovery that this was the location of Joseph’s house, the site was pronounced sacred to catholic Christians and a monastery was built adjacent to the church. At the end of the 19th century a new church was founded in it, with beautiful paintings, sculptures and stained glass windows, among them also an original painting of The Descent from the Cross” by the Italian renaissance painter Titian, donated by the city of Madrid in the year 1846. In the end of the 19th century the “Terra Santa” school was opened in the site, where Muslim and Christian children study together. On the second floor of the church, one can see the room of Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor of France.
