Iglesia Nuestra Señora de la Asunción

16th century

The Church represents the splendour of different periods

The current Renaissance style church, which has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest, was built on the site of two earlier churches. The first can be traced back to the 13th century, the time of the Reconquest in Moratalla, and from the second, there remains a Late Gothic-style window, something very rare in the region. In the 16th century the population increased significantly, meaning a larger church was needed for Christian worship, which in those days was limited to the castle chapel. Inside you can see works of great historical and artistic interest, such as the figures of Saint John and the La Dolorosa by the sculptor Roque López, disciple of the Baroque master Francisco Salzillo.
