Minaret of San Juan

 It is by pure luck that this minaret has survived practically intact, in its original 10th century state, since, together with the Mosque it was connected to (which was completely demolished), it was due to be cleared to make way for a church of the Order of San Juan. It is a square tower built of solid stone blocks (ashlars), but its most notable decorative features are the twin horseshoe arches with marble columns. It is owned now, along with the church, by the religious order Esclavas de Jesús.
