Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción

Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción


Inaugurated in 1958, the church was built on the site of the one built during the 16th century on top of a previous one, which was burnt down in August 1936. It has a single nave with a barrel vault and chapels on both sides.

The most outstanding feature of the church is the vaulted transept and the high tower on the outside. It has an eclectic style, made of a combination of different influences, in particular classicism, which was the prevailing style in Spanish architecture after the last civil war.

Inside, we can find a stained glass windows at the ends of the transept, which represent Santo Tomás de Villanueva and San Juan de Ávila, and two wooden sculptures,the so-called Virgen de Villajos from the end of the 13th century, and the Cristo de la Expiración, the last one by Juan Cristóbal, a 20th-century artist. The paintings in the main altar also deserve the visitor’s attention.
