The Salvador Church

The Salvador church, formally known as La Iglesia Colegial del Divino Salvador, is a religious temple of the Catholic Roman order, and it is dedicated to Our Lord Saint Savior. This charge is the largest in the city, after the Cathedral.

Regardless of the fact that Roman and Visigoth architecture is displayed in the main court of the church, the building was erected over the ruins of the, back then, major mosque in the city. This mosque used to be so important than even after Christians conquered the city they allowed the mosque to be opened, until 1340, when it was finally turned into the El Salvador Church.

The church was opened until 1671, when damage was obvious and it was necessary to rebuild it to make the church that people visit nowadays. Reparations started in 1674 and ended by 1712 thanks to the work of Leonardo de Figueroa. The church was constructed in the centre of the city on the rests of a mosque that dates back well over 1,000 years. Visitors can see the rests of the mosque that has remained until nowadays. Except that, you can find there a tall bell tower, a collection of altars from the 18th century, fountains or large orange trees.
