Certainly not one of the main attractions of Salamanca, it is still worth to have a quick look inside. It is a grand church, rather subdued in atmosphere. Build in classical style, it has a nice cupola, as well as several paintings.

This is a magnificent church. It is reported that originally it was supposed to be built in Rome. Lucky Salamanca for having this gem of a church. Do visit both inside and outside. Linger over the painting on the alter. Linger.

Really not much to see in this guy but wanted to include some photos to flesh out this item. The only draw really is the Ribera behind the altar. Personally, not one of his best. Sorry.

La Purisima Church has a very impressive high altarpiece that has a very large painting of the Blessed Virgin, a work by Jose de Ribera. On either side are Corinthian columns. On top there is a crucifix and images of Mary Magdalene and St. John....More
