      Church of St. Bartholomew Apostle

      Church of St. Bartholomew Apostle

      The parochial temple is dedicated to St. Bartholomew Apostle. Its origin dates back to the end of the 16th century, but it is the result of works and remodeling of different periods. It is a building of great simplicity with a basilica plant, covered with a canyon vault, rectangular apse and a small porch at the entrance. It has small side chapels. The ones on the right hand side communicate and the center, larger and with a simple dome, dedicates itself to the Blessed Sacrament. In the apse two rooms are opened, the one on the right is used as a sacristy. At the foot of the temple is the bell tower and a superior gallery for the choir. The decoration of the building is quite sober with classical motifs. There are several images, among them the one of San Canuto, traditional pattern of the young people who were called to fifth. Highlight the wood carving of the Virgen del Rosario.

      The Calvary

      The Calvary

       

      Going up the Santísimo Cristo Street, you reach the Calvary, steep slope clothed with cypresses that ends with a Hermitage, that of the Santísimo Cristo del Socorro. It is one of the most beautiful landscapes of the town. The chapel of the Santísimo Cristo del Socorro is a small building with a dome, with a sacristy on the right side, from which you access a high gallery that overlooks the nave of the enclosure. In the apse, inside a niche of the altarpiece, is the precious and beautiful image, in wood carving, of the Christ of Socorro and, at its feet, the Painful one of half body. The exterior, like the interior, is of great decorative simplicity.
