“Church of La Asuncion”

Church of La Asuncion
Reviewed September 27, 2012

From the outside it appears an unassuming building but inside it is a baroque gem. Small but perfectly delightful. Entrance is free but a 'donation' is encouraged. Worth a visit.

The Sagrarium Chapel of the La Asuncion Church is located at Calle Abad Palomino. It was declared a National Monument in 1932. It was constructed by Francisco Javier Pedrajas between 1772 and 1784. The chapel has an octagonal floor plan and is completely covered with Rococo plaster decoration and is a masterpiece of the Spanish Baroque. There is a tabernacle by the sculptor Manuel Garnelo that was finished in 1921. The church was constructed by the Marquis of Priego in 1525 and the original design was Gothic and Mudejar, with three naves and pointed arches, with a Mudejar roof. The Door of Santa Ana has elaborate Plateresque design and came from Martin de Bolivar. There is a tower from 1541. The side chapel of Christ Crucified has a figure of Christ by Alonso de Mena from 1635. The main altar dates from 1567 and has paintings by Pedro de Raxis and Gines Lopez. There is a beautiful chapel to the Virgen de la Soledad, whose saint day is celebrated on May 16.
