Church of Salvador

This church is built on an old Muslim mosque, whose remains can be seen on guided visits. The horseshoe arches from the Islamic age are supported by reused Roman and Visigoth columns.

Next to the presbytery is a Visigoth pilaster with reliefs of the life of Christ, but the figures have their features blurred in the Muslim age. The stone tower belongs to the marinet of the mosque, with baroque brick added.

On the outside it is decorated with reused Visigoth reliefs. In the XII Century it was dedicated to Christian worship, becoming the parish church of El Salvador.

At the end of the XV Century, the Santa Catalina annex chapel was built, an example of late gothic architecture. The future queen Juana de Castilla was christened in this church, who would become the mother of Carlos V and end the adventures of Lazarillo de Tormes.
