The Royal Collegiate of Santa Maria is a church built in the 16th century. It was the first in Andalusia to use Columns either side of centre to support the roof. The design, like most churches
constructed around that time is a mixture of Renaissance, Gothic and the typical Mudejar facades around the arches. Today the church is used for concerts and exhibitions. It was also used as a
backdrop for the Netflix tv series Warrior Nun. For more information and directions to the church have a look below.
