The Iglesia de San Sebastian is situated in the geographic centre of Antequera and is another example of the classic architecture of the town. Viewed from Calle Don Infante, the Bell Tower leans significantly to the right

I popped into this church in the centre of Antequera a couple of times, when I found it open (it was closed during the afternoon siesta period). Worth seeing, though there's nothing extraordinary about it, apart from a rather gory statue of Christ behind glass...More

Antequera has a great number of churches, and this one sits in the Plaza San Sebastian. It's a beautiful 17th century church richly adorned in gold leaf and wonderful friezes and statues.
