This is a beautiful Renaissance church on one of the highest points in the town, with great views.
It was the first Renaissance church built in Andalusia, built between 1514 and 1550, on the orders of the Bishop of Malaga Don Diego Ramirez de Villaescusa.
The church has beautiful proportions and a beautiful design. There are late Gothic elements in the church, but the majority are from the Renaissance. The facade is impressive and the most monumental in Antequera, having three niches that are very geometric. There are three naves that are separated by large Ionic columns. The main chapel has a rectangular plan which are covered by cupolas that have a Gothic-Mudejar style, with the design of two large stars, with six and eight points. The church has plenty of light due to elegant windows that are in the Florentine style, and makes the interior of the church look very Italian.
The church is now used for cultural events of the city, and the artwork and religious items have been transferred to the Church of San Sebastian.
