Information and bookings


It began in the 13th century with the semantics of the Gothic, in the following centuries most of the factory was configured according to the artistic lexicography of the Renaissance and the works were completed in the 18th century in the Baroque style.

Its nave is rectangular, structured in five sections that separate pointed arches on semipillars, and is covered with a pair of wooden roof and gabled row. The right side presents four chapels covered with half barrel.

The one that welcomes the patron, the Virgen del Campo –the sculptural group formed by Mary and the Child dates from the 20th century–, has its access through a semicircular arch on pillars with boxed pilasters with capitals with eggs and darts. On the left side there is a chapel-niche with a semicircular arch.

The presbytery has a flat front, is covered with a half-barrel with lunettes and is accessed through a central semicircular arch on pillars with entablatures. At the foot of the temple are the tower, the high choir and the door. The tower is Renaissance, built with ashlar masonry, with a square base, has holes for bells and is covered with four waters.

Also worth noting are its two Renaissance portals, one located, the most valuable, on the Gospel side, and the other at the foot. Its porch, of much later construction, is significant in that it involves the insertion of an element of popular architecture.
