We dashed to see this church before it closed at 13.30 and were so glad we did. The ceiling is superb as is the amazing carved altar.

Antequera has thirty churches and I think this is the best to visit.Situated in the old town with magnificent views. The whole church is very ornate with the highlight being the magnificent redwood altar.A testament to the extreme wealth of the Catholic church
