Church of St Mary

Located on the square of the same name, the Church of Santa María is an interesting mix of architectural styles. Building started in the 13C and was only completed in the 17C. Inside, note the various ogival, circular and pendentive vaults, as well as Christ in the Olive Garden (La Oración del Huerto) by El Greco; these are in a chapel on the left, which is closed off by an elegant railing designed by Master Bartolomé (16C). This large painting, created between 1597 and 1607 shows Christ dressed in an elegant red tunic; a bright light shining down from the sky picks him out from the other figures: an angel in white and the apostles Peter, James and John, who appear sleeping at his feet.
