Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Santa Marta Parish 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. 

The single-nave temple with a Latin cross plan has two chapels on the sides. The nave is covered with a wooden coffered ceiling. However, the main chapel and the chapel on the Gospel side,  are covered by a simple ribbed vault. 

The tower, at the west front of the nave, is decorated with Renaissance motifs. It consists of two levels topped by a spire covered with glazed ceramic. It has four bells, one on each side, flanked by double pilasters. The bell, commonly known as “La Santa María”, is from the 18th century.
