Church of Santa Maria de la Encarnacion

The Church of Santa Maria de la Encarnacion is located at Avenida Sor Teresa Prat, 45. The church was built on top of the old mezquita in the 16th century. The style of the church is Gothic-Mudejar. There are three naves that are separated by pillars made of brick. These pillars support  arches that are also made of brick. There is one tower that dominates the landscape. The church has a beautiful main altarpiece that dates between 1560 and 1580. It was made by Pedro de Moros and the design may have been made by Diego de Vergara. The Civil War damaged much of the decoration. The composition is definitely Renaissance. The church now has the Holy Week Museum, which opened in 2007. It shows the history and traditions associated with the city's Holy Week celebrations. This museum is free to visitors.
