Iglesia de Santiago

Church of SantiagoLike most of the Fernandine churches, this one was built on the site of a former Omeyan mosque of which the minaret has survived to this day, converted into a Christian tower. It has happily recovered many of its original architectural features thanks to the restoration work carried out on the building. The main body of the church, rectangular in shape, is divided into three naves. Among the many works of artistic merit, the most notable is the image of Cristo de las Penas (Christ of Grief), an anonymous work from the 15th century.
