San Nicolás del Puerto Puente de Piedra

Sevilla enamora

The current La Merced Church was built in 1650, although it was extensively renovated in the second half of the 18th century. The friars arrived in Osuna in 1609. They initially settled in the Shrine to Santa Ana, on the outskirts of the city. After two failed attempts, they built a new monastery on its current site in 1637.

This church is an 18th century building, made of limestone and pink marble from the Sierra de San Pablo. 

Built over a 17th century church, of which only the first section of the tower remains, its Baroque stone façade is one of its most outstanding features. It has a Latin cross floor plan and the naves are separated by 16 Tuscan columns.

The St John Baptist Church must have been founded after the Christians conquered Marchena. It is likely linked to the presence of the Order of St John, first documented in the 13th century. Only the chapel under the tower remains from that original Church.

 This Mudejar-style Parish Church was renovated in the late 18th century and the mid-20th century. It is located in the centre of the town, very close to the castle.

The Church owes its name to the town’s patron saint, Saint Martha. 

El Real de la Jara enjoyed a strategic position throughout the Middle Ages, which made it a major defensive hub, as evidenced by the remains of the Castle, located a stone's throw from the town. 

This brick masonry building consists of a single nave divided into five sections and a quadrangular main chapel. A square chapel is attached to the right side, and the Sacramental Chapel is on the Epistle side.

The two-level, ashlar tower capped with a pyramidal spire is on the Gospel wall.
 

A building with a single rectangular nave and side chapels over which the choir platform extends. The nave is covered with a groin vault and the transept with a dome. The church, built on older constructions, is from the second third of the 18th century and is currently the seat of the Confraternity of the Cristo de la Yedra, a 17th-century image that is worshipped in front of the altar.
