A beautiful church. The ceilings and wood carvings are magnificent. We have visited the church on several occasions, and alwaysd return for a feeling of tranquility.

“A Pleasant Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Interesting history in this church. 4 euro tour offers audio guide which explains the architecture and history inside this monument. While contents span centuries, much of the art is from the 19th & 20th century with excellent examples of paintings, wood and metal sculpture. Very pleasant stop for a visit while in Ronda.

“The Mirhab”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

This is a very unusual church in that it has arched "theater boxes" built into its facade so that dignitaries of long ago could watch events in the main square. A portion of the remaining Mirhab just inside the entrance is a delicate beauty. The informative audio guide is complementary with the entrance fee.
