Church of Nuestra Señora de La Palma
Work on this church began in 1723, when the increase in population made the religious service offered by the chapel of Our Lady of Europe insufficient, finishing 13 years later, although the canonical consecration of the temple was not carried out until 1829.
At first, the church consisted of only three naves. It currently consists of five naves, plus a transept and roofs of Arab tiles located at different levels.
The central dome of the transept rests on four wide pillars with a square base, topped with capitals that roughly imitate the Ionic style.
Between 1795 and 1805 the last reforms were carried out with its bell tower. This tower has a square floor plan with two bodies, it is in a tempered neoclassical style that gives it a very robust appearance and, as a curious fact, its base is formed by reused ashlar masonry from the old medieval walls of the city, as attested to by the stonemasonry marks it has.
