Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion

It is a temple of medieval origin, rebuilt on, the work was concluded with Fray Juan de Toledo, whose weapons are kept in the plateresque facade.

Except this place, nothing of the old parish remains since returned to rebuild at the end of the 18th century. The threat of ruin forced to form a new building, now only three ships, whose construction took place in 1788. This new temple accused a configuration typical of the neoclassical.

In the second half of the 18th century, there were important works in this parish, as the foot tower and the chapel of the Tabernacle. Other examples of chapels are The Chapel of Carmen, Chapel of the Aurora , Chapel of the Virgen de la Esperanza and Chapel of the Heart of Jesus.

Plateresque Facade

On the front of the foot of the temple opens a plateresque portal directed by Hernán Ruiz I. It is structured in two sections, the first a door opens between pilasters on the high pedestal. The second part comprises three halls and a slot on the side of two. The rooms contain three niches within them.

Tower

The tower dates from the 18th century. It is built in brick and is attached to the front of the foot on his left side. It is squared and has two stories. The first presents the face of its four sides convered, with the exception of the front suroccidental in which a rectangular compartmet opens.
