Church of St John the Baptist

Recommended
This 15C church in the Gothic Mudéjar style has several works of art, the most remarkable being the sumptuous retable of the presbiterio, painted by Alejo Fernández and sculpted by his brother Jorge. Note the enclosures of the capilla mayor and the coro, the mahogany and cedar stalls sculpted by Jerónimo de Balbás, and the sculpted retable of the chapel of the Sacred Heart, by Roque Balduque and Jerónimo Hernández.
