The old church was built in the early 15th century, atop an old chapel from the Christian conquest. This fortified Mudéjar Gothic building originally combined religious and defensive functions, since it was a place of refuge when the community was under attack.

Old Church

Inside you can see a panel painting in tempera from the 15th century which depicts St. Anthony the Abbot, St. Cosmas and St. Damian, created by the workshop of the master Perea, and of great artistic value. It also houses the images of Cristo del Sudor, the patron saint of the municipality, Santo Sepulcro, and the Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of sailors.

The entire building, as well as the various works that are kept inside of it, which depict St. Anthony the Abbot, St. Cosmas and St. Damian and are attributed to a student of Juan Rexach, form a prized and valuable cultural ensemble.
