Church of San Nicolás

The church that we see nowadays is the fruit of an almost complete reconstruction carried out in the XVIII Century, and is, therefore, baroque. The previous church appears to have been founded in the XVI Century, and El Greco would later create several canvases for one of its chapels.

On being located in the noble area of the city, the parishioners were of the highest pedigree. The only nave is divided into five sections with chapels on both sides, covered by barrel vaults with lunettes and the dome on pechinas in the main chapel is of an ovoid shape.

The large canvas at the Main Altar, by Zacarías Hernández, represents the patron saint of the parish church. The rest of the church and the side altarpieces are decorated with a large number of paintings and sculptures from different centuries, from the XVI Century to the XIX Century.
