An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Church of Ntra. Sra. de Los Remedios

This Church was initially a small shrine dedicated to the True Cross. Following its decline in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, it was used as accommodation for travelling soldiers. Now, it is one of the most outstanding baroque churches in the province.

This architectural jewel, listed as an Andalusian Historical Heritage, consists of a nave with a lowered barrel vault, barrel arches and lunettes, five side chapels, a presbytery, an octagonal chapel above the altar and red-and-black marble walls. To the left of the temple is a small garden. It has been argued that a Mudejar-style temple used to stand there. It has undergone several renovations since it was built in the 16th century, the last in 1999. 

Highlights inside include 18th-century altarpieces by the Antequera School, the titular images’ small chapel, the main altarpiece by the Ecijan School, several 16th and 17th-century statues, a 16th-century chasuble and another from the 18th century.
