Iglesia de la Encarnación

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This church was built by the royal decree of the Catholic Kings on the site of a former mosque. It was designed and built by the architect Francisco Prieto Moreno. The main chapel, built by Martin de Bolivar, dates back to the mid-16th century. The church was restored after it was damaged in the Civil War. Inside there is a picture of Cristo del Paño, and a statue of Jesus which is greatly venerated by local people. To help their prayers come true, the inhabitants of Moclín pass a cloth over the painting. This act of worship may well have inspired certain passages of Federico García Lorca’s work, Yerma.
