Pretty little church in the old town of Alhaurin el Grande. Peaceful and beautiful statues and lovely alter. At certain times of the year you may be lucky enough to see the beautiful ornate silver covered floats that are carried in our celebrations.

When we moved to the village I went on a short tour of various 'sight's'. Although this is very much a 'working church.' Especially on Sunday's when you are sitting in the square with a coffee at a certain time the attendees pour out. (Perhaps best avoid this time as it is noisy and crowded including children running unsupervised in what was the once peaceful square.) It is very modern inside, which I was surprized about, and to be honest, quite uninspiring. Nice Plaza outside though, which can be quiet. (If you like that.)

This church sits in a pretty square called Plaza Baja. By no means the busiest spot in Alhaurin, but there are a couple of pleasant tapas bars. There is parking behind the church (a parking lot) and also street parking in the vicinity. The blue spire of this church provides an ideal landmark as you walk around the town. Behind the church you will find the Arco del Cobertizo (The Arch of Protection). It's not signposted, but just head behind the church and look for the brick arch. What is amazing is that the arch is actually from the 12th century. It is from the muslim period and was the gateway to the medina and likely part of the city walls. The church itself (not always open), started life shortly after the arrival of the Catholic Monarchs in 1485, though not finished until the late 16th C. It's been altered in the centuries since. Alhaurin can be a bit confusing to start with - either in a car or on foot. Make your first stop after this church, the info centre. This is a desk and a rack of maps tucked inside the Casa de la Cultura, just a short way along Calle Nueva (which is where this church is). The lady there spoke English and was very helpful giving us maps etc and a wonderful blue guidebook published by the Council (and free) which details this church and many other monuments and parks in Alhaurin and is in Spanish and English.
