Parroquia de la Asunción

The Plaza de Andalucía lies at the heart of Palma.

On its right, a pointed arch with beautiful Renaissance balconies, belonging to the old palacio de los Portocarrero, provides access to the town’s main monument: the Parroquia de la Asunción [Parish Church].

It is a Baroque temple, constructed over the course of the 18th century, and boasts a curious red brick façade presided over by the tower, wherein the combination of bricks and tiles recalls the architecture of Ecija.  

Inside, the temple boasts a Latin-cross plan with a large nave surrounded by side chapels with tribunes of Rococo corbels mounted on their entrance arches.

The entrance arches are separated by gigantic pilasters that boast Rococo plasterwork capitals, as is the case with the modillions that decorate the entablature.

The current raised altarpiece, which replaced the altarpiece that was destroyed during the Civil War, was constructed from pieces taken from various old altarpieces. 

The parish silverware includes a 16th-century Gothic chalice attributed to Diego Fernández.
