This is probably the only Romanesque church in Andalucia. During the centuries XI, XII and XII, when the predominant style in western Europe was the Romanesque, Andalucía was under the Muslim rule.
This church was built in the XIII century. Paintings dated to the XV and XVI centuries represent the Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian and Saint Catherine.
The west front was taken from the ruins of San Juan church. The church consists of three naves with semicircular apse. A visigothic arch was found. A chapel occupies the place where there was a gate. The church belonged to the Templar Order.
