Iglesia de Santo Toribio de Mangrovejo information

Lonely Planet review

Compared with the other churches, this one is relatively small. It was erected between 1666 and 1732 and its ceiling is covered with Mudejar paneling. During Vernon's attack on the city in 1741, a cannonball went through a window into the church when it was filled with worshipers, but fortunately there were no casualties. The cannonball is now on display in a glassed niche in the left wall.
