  • The main altarpiece is neoclassical, and is chaired by a canvas of the Asunción of María of Mariano Salvador Maella. The side chapels have valuable works of art. Among them stands out, in the chapel of Santa Leocadia, painting of the appearance of Santa Leocadia, San Ildefonso and the King Recaredo, dating back to 1592, and is one of the few preserved works by the painter toledano Blas de Prado. Holy Martyrs Chapel houses two Gothic funerary monuments of the 15th century. Santa Ana's or Kings, the Santa María de el Pópulo and the Christ of the mirrors are other chapels highlights. The Church houses also important samples of Talavera Ceramics. Some of the paintings date back to the 16th century, such as the altarpiece of holy martyrs. The altarpiece of the Christ of the sea is the work of the Potter Ruiz de Luna. The cloister was built in the 15th century in Gothic style. The Fernando de Rojas, La Celestina, and several funerary monuments of the 15th century author is buried. The sacristy was built in the 16th, and is chaired by an image of the Virgin of the 15th century, probably that presided over the ancient altarpiece. The upper bodies of the tower were built at the beginning of the 18th century in Baroque style.

  • Must-see for anyone who likes to admire this type of religious buildings. The parish church of Santa María la Mayor was elevated to the status of Collegiate Church in 1211, the eight hundred anniversary recently celebrated. After the last restoration, which brought him that light and brightness that once lacked, it has become the most significant monument of the city. A visit by the roof sides, inside rosette, a climb to the Bell Tower, cloister, etc. etc., allow you to know in detail the impressive resulting. Unfortunately, a visit of this kind is very difficult or impossible for any tourist who comes, should provide the means to make it more accessible to tourism.

  • One of the jewels that you should not miss if you visit Talavera. Both by its Gothic-Mudejar artistic exhibitions, ceramics in the altarpiece of the Christ of the sea or the de los Santos Mártires and hosts the remains of the author de la Celestina Don Fernando de Rojas. If we can put you one drawback is its narrow visiting hours from Monday to Friday from 10 to 11 and Sunday from 12 to 1 p.m.
