Andalusian Baroque
Oct 2015 • Family
This church is one of the summits of the Andalusian Baroque, a must see monument in Priego de Córdoba.

The quality of the decoration, scultures and carvings of "Jesus Nazareno" and "Cristo de la columna" will transport you to a magical atmosphere.

Al there is left to me to is to invite the reader to one of the greatest Baroque's church un the world. You will never forget the experience.

Beautiful Church
Aug 2011 • Couples
The construction of this church was started in 1510 under the patronage of Don Pedro Fernandez de Cordoba, the first Marquis of Priego, and was finished in 1548. The original style was late Gothic, with Mudejar touches. In the 18th century it was reconstructed using the Baroque style by the architects Jeronimo Sanchez de Rueda and Juan de Dios Santaella. The church has cross-vaulted ceilings, segmented cupolas, and an abundance of Baroque plaster decorations. The altar was created by Juan de Dios Santaella in 1781. It contains a shrine to the Virgin with a sculpture of the Virgin by the school of Jose de Mora. There is a niche with the figure of Saint Stephen.

There is a beautiful Chapel of Jesus of Nazareth that was constructed by Jeronimo Sanchez de Rueda and Juan de Dios Santaella. The statue of Jesus of Nazareth was done by Pablo de Rojas in 1592. There are sculptures of Our Lady of Sorrow and St. John the Evangelist on each side, carved by the school of Pablo de Rojas around 1600. Jose Risueño carved the images of St. John the Baptist and Jesus as children. The Chapel of the Scourging Jesus has the statue of Christ being scourged and was done by Alonso de Mena in 1640.
