“Beautiful Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

The Iglesia de la Anunciacion is located at Calle Laraña, 1. This is beside the Plaza de la Encarnacion. The building was planned by the Jesuit priest Bartolome Bustamante in 1565, and constructed by Hernan Ruiz. The church has the Latin Cross design and the main chapel has a vaulted ceiling. The doorway at the façade has two parts. The lower part has an arch with two niches, while the upper part has three niches with the sculpture of the Virgen con el Niño in the center and flanked with the statues of San Jose and San Rafael, works of the 18th century. The cupola is adorned with ceramic tiles from Seville and there is a bell tower. The main altar was made of gilded wood and was the work of Alonso Matias in 1606. The central painting is the Sagrada Familia, created by Juan Roelas. Beside this are paintings of the Adoration of the Shepherds and the Epiphany. Above is a painting of the Annunciation of Antonio Mohedano and another of Los Santos Juanes with sculptures of San Pedro and San Pablo. Other important chapels are those of the Inmaculada, San Juan Bautista, La Virgen de Belen, and the Hermandad del Valle.
