Church of San Bartolome

The present building features a series of restorations and styles, the Mudejar apse from the XIII Century being especially noteworthy, decorated with three levels of different blind arcades made of brick. There were two flat side apses added, when the church trebled its number of original naves in the following century.

Later, gothic chapels were added; in the XVI Century the chapel of Santa Catalina, by Nicolás de Vergara "el Mozo" and in the XVII Century the chapel of Loreto, by Jorge Manuel, the son of El Greco. There were also restoration works in the XX Century. It is one of the first parish churches founded after the conquest, as it appears documented as early as the XII Century.

Its tower uses the structure of Muslim minaret, as in the church of Santiago, on whose walls appear some reused Visigoth reliefs, although fewer than in the tower of the church of San Salvador
