San Miguel


The parish church ofSan Miguel is located at the Plaza Mayor, opposite the cathedral.

This was a Romanesque temple and then was rebuilt in the late Gothic style. Next to the door of the church, in 1474 Queen Isabella I of Castile, later called Isabel la Catolica, was proclaimed Queen.

From an artistic point of view we canhighlightthe set of three relieves embedded in the south wall of Saint Michael, Saint Peter and Saint Paul. These sculptures were cleaned and restored a few years ago and they now look magnificent. They belong to late Romanesque times, as we can see once we realize that the statues lack a rigid pose. The scene where Saint Michael appears is the most complete as he appears spearing the dragon's head at his feet.

The altarpiece is a fine Baroque style designed by José de Ferreras in 1672. The facade also exhibits Romanesque figures.
