    This church is one of the oldest in Jaén in its outer cover precious witha of Gothic style. Still retains elements of the original mosque as it is the courtyard. Highly recommended visit for its beautiful interior and the environment in which is situated.

    Before heading us toward it for your visit. We had already read the article of Luis Berges Roldán, entitled "Islamic mosque Christian Temple". We believe that even the inhabitants of this city, are unfamiliar of the vicissitudes that has passed the rebuilding of this church. Thanks to the commitment and effort of D. Luis, this church is on foot today. Happens to be the oldest in the city, was built on the top of one mosque of SVIII, built by Abderramán II, four ships are still preserved and the ablutions courtyard, retains its Horseshoe along with others of semicircular arches. It has four naves divided by pillars and arches, plant is square but irregular, needless to that his style is very interspersed, being its Elizabethan Gothic façade. At the main entrance there is a relief with the image of the Magdalene praying between two coats of arms unrecognizable, there to be very understanding to recognize the old minaret in its bell tower. Inside this plagued artisticas-religiosas works, hope not to leave us no: El Calvario with cupcake to the foot of the cross of Jacobo Florentino, a table of Ntra. Ms. of the Pilar de Pedro Machuca, the Christ of clemency of Salvador de Cuellar, image of the Magdalena of Mateo de Medina. Say that the courtyard of the old mosque with its rectangular pond, be restored by adding a garden decorating pool in the 20th century. Currently there is the birth of water, which gave rise to the popular legend of the lizard of "Malena".

  • He stressed his Tower of octagonal Finial, which originally was a minaret. The beautiful courtyard, arched central pond, which is next to the Church, betrays its origins as a Muslim mosque.
