Santiago

In the narrow Calle Granada, close to the Plaza de la Merced, the church of Santiago, founded after the Reconquista, has preserved from its original Mudejar decor a brick tower decorated with panels of sebka in the upper register and an old doorway, since blocked off, with geometric intertwining. In a chapel on the lower left side, the Baroque interior (18C) contains a statue of Jesus the Rich, a highly venerated object which owes its name to the wooden and silver cross bearing Christ. Picasso was baptised in this church.
