La Aurora

Juan de Dios Santaella reworked this 15C church in the 18C in the Baroque style. Only the tower and bell tower are from the 16C. The attractive baroque doorway in polychromatic marble is divided into two registers, and contains the Virgin of the Dawn in the centre, between two twisted columns. Inside, the single nave has an exuberant Baroque decor. Every Saturday at midnight the Brotherhood of the Aurora go through the streets of the town singing canticles in honour of the Virgin, as they have done for almost 350 years.
