Long Description:
The Mannerist facade is simple.

The floor plan as a whole, except for some changes, has the design of the Moorish Granada churches

Inside, the central altarpiece is one of the most interesting examples of Andalusian Baroque altarpieces of the eighteenth century. At first sight, the visitor can feel a little bit confused due to the complex joint of truncated columns (stipes), cornices, niches, faux curtains ... all of that Traced With mixtilinear zigzag cross sections bending and flexing in an endless design.

The side altarpieces are thought to be more recent.
