“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

The Los Remedios Convent was started in 1628 by Gonzalo Yañez and Fernando de Oviedo.
The façade is quite unassuming and simple. The Latin Cross was used as the floor plan of the church. The central nave is higher than the lateral naves, and is topped with a cupola. The impressive main altarpiece was done in the first third of the 18th century by Antonio Rivera and is considered one of the best in Antequera. There is a very elaborate design with white plaster moldings that are all over the church. The paintings in the church show passages in the lives of the Virgin Mary, San Antonio, and San Jose. The sculpture of the Virgin is the work of Miguel Marquez Garcia, who finished it in 1816. There is a camarin, that is the dressing room of the Virgin.
