Parroquia de San Bartolomé

Via Calle Corredera we come to the Plaza de España, the urban and monumental centre, which is dominated by the Parroquia de San Bartolomé, a Gothic-Renaissance temple started at the end of 15th century and completed during the 16th century.

It consists of three naves separated by pointed arches that are supported on solid stone pillars: a Mudejar lacunar covers the central nave, wherein the apse opens onto the main chapel with ribbed vault.

Amongst the side chapels, the capilla del Rosario, which dates back to the middle of the 18th century, bears special mention. 

The temple’s current appearance is the result of post-war restoration, and the murals were added in the same period.

The sacristy houses some of the few works of art that survived the war, including a delicate 16th century oval relief worked in marble.

The building possesses a beautiful late Gothic façade attributed to Hernán Ruiz I, whilst his son Hernán Ruiz II is identified as the author of the first section of the tower –which incorporates a beautiful window overlooking a monument in honour of San Rafael-, started in 1548 and finished in 1807, the period wherein the neo-classical bell tower was added.
