Iglesia parroquial de Santa María la Mayor

LoadingAdd to My Granada

The triumphal arch of the stunning façade of this church is reminiscent of the Door of Forgiveness in the Cathedral of Granada. Next to it the bell tower, made of sections decreasing in size, is located. Inside, there are three naves separated by pointed arches, covered with beautifully decorated Mudejar ceilings. The main chapel, designed by Diego de Siloé, has a stunning altarpiece. The door of the sacristy is carved in wood, and is by Pedro Machuca, the architect of the Palace of Charles V in the Alhambra.

The earliest documentation referring to its construction dates back to 1506. The building was started by the stonemason Domingo de Yguía, and was later completed by the architect Diego de Siloé.
