A Crucified Christ works from the 16th century, discovered 15 years ago in the cellars of the building. Unfortunately the church has suffered a great fire and hopefully now is again restored.

Can be seen for miles around. When you get there, it gives great views of the 'pueblo Blanco and the countryside below. Unfortunately it was closed because of Samana Santa celebrations.

This beautiful twin spired church dominates the village together with the neighbouring Arab Fortess and for me gives Olvera the title of the finest Pueblo Blanco in Andalusia
