From other reviews it's good to see the 'donations' have been done away with and the paltry €2 entrance fee requested by the immaculate demure Mary could surely not offend. Beautiful church both inside and out, was struck by the warm temperatures on entering and...More

This is a small local church in a pictoresque town of Zahara de la Sierra, just in the downtown. Perhaps worth to visit for 5-10 minutes but its fine also to check it only from outside.
