The Church of Sant Joan (St John) is to be found in one of the Lleida's most distinctive squares.

Neo-Gothic style church built in the 19th century (1833) on an earlier Romanesque temple from the 12th century, which in turn had been built on a mosque. Now, this building has a three-nave basilica plan, with a neo-Gothic facade and a side door in the Ilerdan Romanesque style.

The design was the work of the architects Julio de Saracíbar and Celestí Capmany. From the interior, the stained glass windows by Jaume Bonet and the three rosettes representing the Assumption of Mary, the Epiphany and the Baptism of Jesus stand out.

In 1975, archaeological remains of the old Romanesque church and several corbels and capitals were found which were transferred to the Lleida Diocesan and Comarcal Museum.
