Announced on Monday, August 8, the council said that the roof needed essential repairs that would limit the damage of rainwater to the church, the surrounding buildings and streets below.

Included in the works are:
While the work is being undertaken an archaeological and architectural study will be completed. That will allow authorities to not only obtain a better understanding of future works but also allow for a better understanding of the history of the building and its structure.
The parish priest, D. Vicent, said the announcement that the works is to be started shortly was: “Very good news, a first small step towards restoring the entire Church. For now, we can start with the most urgent and deteriorated, which is the part of the roof. From here we can continue working to continue improving it. We hope to apply for this grant in more calls, thanks to the collaboration and goodwill of all the people who make it possible.”
