A big baroque church in Plaza Salvador built between 1674 and 1712 on the site of Muslim Ishbiliya's main mosque. The facade is actually Mannerist (a more imaginative extension of the Renaissance influenced by Michelangelo). The interior reveals a fantastic richness of carving and gilding. At sunset, colour from stained-glass windows plays on the carvings to enhance their surreal beauty.
