Iglesia y Seminario de San Carlos Borromeo

The School and Church of the Inmaculada, belonging to the Company of Jesus were raised on the plot of land previously occupied by the Higher Synagogue of the Jewry of Zaragoza. In the 18th century the whole interior ornamentation of the church is renewed ,designed by brother Lacarre-, making it into the most sumptuous unit of the Zaragoza Baroque and a model for numerous later pieces of work. After the expulsion of the Jesuits (1767) it was called the royal Seminary of San Carlos Borromeo, in honour of the king Carlos III.The whole interior of the church is worth a careful visit due to the profuse decoration, which is deployed throughout the nave and in the side chapels.
