St. Peter’s Church

Temple of baroque factory of the second half of the XVIII century. It has a rectangular floor plan with three naves with transept and chancel with side chapels.

The tower is located at the foot. It has three bodies: the first, square and of masonry; the second, of brick, is also square, but with pilasters flanking the edges. The top, under the spire, is octagonal.

The doorway is located at the foot of the church. It is structured in two bodies, separated by a smooth entablature. In the central part of the first body, the door opens in a semicircular arch decorated with simple baquetons, on which the symbols of St. Peter are carved. The second section has a lintel window flanked by pilasters and crowned by a small entablature and a split pediment.
Some of the altars that exist today were assembled from the remains of the old altarpieces that existed in the church before the Civil War. In addition, two doors from the convent of the Servite monks have been reused as altarpieces. According to oral information, several pieces of furniture found in the sacristy of the church also belonged to this convent, such as a cabinet for liturgical vestments decorated with rocaille, a desk and a lectern.
