The Church of San Nicolás, located in the El Grau neighbourhood, is an example of 20th century religious buildings. It is considered a work of high architectural quality, with a trapezoidal structure that fits into a projection of the port, placing it in a prominent place in the harbour, like a ship that goes into the sea.

It was inaugurated in 1962 to replace the old church destroyed in the Civil War. It was the work of the architect Gonzalo Echegaray Comba and the engineer Eduardo Torroja Miret, a benchmark in the use of structural concrete and designer of the stands at the Zarzuela Hippodrome in Madrid.
