Details

The Church of St. Anthony of Padua is located at the foot hills o­n which the Velez Castle stands, close to the 16th century temple of St. Andrew.  It would have been part of the settlement that formerly surrounded the castle.

The temple is a very simple construction and has undergone numerous refurbishments and alterations over time, particularly in the 19th and 20th centuries, when additions such as a belltower and a vastry were built and repairs were carried out o­n the transept dome.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936 - 1939)  the Baroque alterpiece and some of the alters were destroyed, later being replaced by specially-made copies.

Inside the church, the decoration is impressive and o­n the main fašade there is a niche containing a statue of the St. Anthony of Padua and it bears the Velez family coat of arms.
