Nuestro Padre Jesús del Gran Poder

Interesting
Adjoining the 13C church of St Lawrence, altered in the 17C, this modern sanctuary (1965) contains the superb statue of The All-powerful Christ (Jesús del Gran Poder, 1620). This masterpiece by Juan de Mesa, surrounded by red carnations devotedly left by the faithful at his feet, is found in a camarín: the slightly tilted face of Christ, sculpted with great realism is imbued with a great weariness and a deep sadness.
