Santa Maria church

The 17C church of the old Santa María convent has given its name to this district. Its mannerist style facade, with clear memories of Juan de Herrera, is the work of Alonso de Vandelvira, son of the famous Renaissance architect Andrès de Vandelvira. It is topped by a belfry crowned with a spire (18C), decorated with tiles. Inside, notice the dynamism of the Baroque retable and the Delft floor tiles decorating the base of the Nazarene chapel.
