If you have already been in the city for a while then you know, that when you see a nondescript and unassuming looking church you absolutely have to go inside. The unrestrained lavish decoration of this 14th century church in honor of the Immaculate Conception make it one of the most incredible sights you will see in this city. This particular style of Baroque decoration is known as Andalusian Baroque. The church is especially notable for its transitional elements from Gothic to Renaissance architecture with some basic elements of Mudejar architecture thrown in. Highlights include the 14th century chapel of St. James, and the tombs of Don Felipe and his wife.Once upon a time this church used to be an important pilgrimage stop.

  • The most surprising and magnificent interior with such art work carvings on the ceiling and arches and murals mirroring them. Glittering and stylish. Pure eye candy. Free but for €1 art donation for this gem. Go you won't regret it.

  • This is another church with an Islamic and Jewish background. It was a mosque, then a synagogue, and finally a Christian Church. It is a perfect example of Baroque art, which depended on plaster as one of the most used elements of Mudejar architecture. Once you walk inside take the time to look up. The vaulted ceilings and the domes are profligately decorated with plaster. This was so because after the Black Death plague of 1649 caused an economic crisis and countries were forced to use creative ways to conduct works of art. The Last Super is fascinating if you like the baroque style of the era. Works by Luis de Vargas dating to 1564 are still vibrantly displayed. Other works by Murillo were stolen but the church still a nice piece of baroque style works. Guess who stole the works of art? A legend says it was a French General named Jean-de-Dieu-Soult! So travel…and see what other unique facts you might just come across. The church is open Monday to Saturday and there is mass on Sunday. Oh, this church honors the Immaculate Conception. As always be aware of pickpockets...just be careful and enjoy traveling throughout Spain

  • Plafond de stuc blanc richement décoré, vierge vêtue de blanc elle aussi. Char de procession exposé. Petite église catholique mais très belle.

  • Merita senz'altro una visita per l'originale abbondanza di stucchi sulla volta della navata centrale che genera un effetto luminoso sorprendente

  • Un lugar absolutamente extraordinario de una enorme belleza, tanto la iglesia como la preciosa imagen de la Stma. Virgen de las Nieves, Titular de la Hdad. Homónima.
