Church of the Assumption and cemetery Montoro de Mezquita

It is a rectangular church with a single nave, chapels between the buttresses and a straight chancel. It is made of masonry, except for some elements, such as the doorway. This one is very sober: a semicircular arched opening under a wide pediment supported by two pilasters.

Inside, the only nave is covered with half-barrel vaults with lunettes and the chapels are covered with half-barrel vaults. It has a high choir at the foot. It is decorated with popular paintings in the presbytery and in two chapels.

The tower is located at the foot, on the Epistle side, and is of two sections: the first is of masonry, with ashlar masonry at the corners, and the second of brick with semicircular arched windows on each of its four sides.

Annexed to the church is the municipal cemetery, a large, well ventilated space outside the urban center. The most outstanding feature of this enclosure is the access door, since it has three ceramic plaques where mortals are exhorted not to sin.
