A 5- minute stop to read the info sign revealed this church's unique history first as a mosque and then later as a church. Its architecture is unique.

Beautiful Catholic Church like most churches in Spain. This church has stairs that you can go to the root. Wonderful views!

This is a fascinating church with balconies on the front so that dignitaries could watch events happening in the square in front of it. Climb to the top of the towers to get the most amazing views of Ronda. Well worth the entrance fee.
