Church of San Jose

The Church of San Jose is located on Calle Alcala, 43, and it was built between 1730 and 1742 by the architect Pedro de Ribera. The style of the church is Baroque and above the main door is a statue of the Virgen del Carmen by Robert Michel, done in 1750. The ground plan is the Latin cross with a central nave and lateral naves with chapels. The main altarpiece is dedicated to the Virgen del Carmen. One side chapel at the front of the church has a very beautiful altarpiece of San Jose, with a sculpture made by Luis Salvador Carmona in the 18th century. This is another beautiful church located downtown.
