Iglesia parroquial de San Miguel Arcángel

LoadingAdd to My Granada

This church, dedicated to St Michael the Archangel, was built in the 16th century, most probably on the site of a former mosque, and is an interesting historical building in Armilla. It is an excellent example of the types of churches built in Mudejar style in Granada, integrating the aesthetic and religious influences of Hispanic-Moorish traditions. Inside the church there is an exquisite coffered ceiling as well as some ancient paintings. Of particular interest are the “Cristo de la Expiración” attributed to Alonso Cano, a picture of Jesus Christ and a picture of St Michael the Archangel. In 1931 the tower was lifted up by a few metres, so that the bells would be more audible from a distance.
