Iglesia de Santa Ana

A temple full of symbols

The Church of Santa Ana was built in 1614 following the founding of the Cofradía de Santa Ana, one of the most traditional brotherhoods of Moratalla. During this period, many hermitages were built in north-western Murcia in the so-called rural Baroque style, consisting of enlarging the proportions of the buildings, and increasing the decoration of the temples. After making several reforms, an underground spring was discovered inside, which explained its constant humidity. The vaulted niche of today’s Tabernacle had been built over the spring. We must highlight the layout of the benches around the altar and the size of the latter, based on the numerology of the name of Mary in Hebrew.
