Ermita de Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno

Ermita de Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno

A mosque from the Nasrid period (twelfth to thirteenth centuries) consecrated to Christian worship in 1489, first as Ermita de Santiago and later as Ermita de Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno. It is the only Almohad enclosure in Spain that, despite the time and aggressions endured, preserves the oratory with its quibla and part of the ornamentation that now decorates the doorway of the mirhab. It is therefore the most complete set of that time that is preserved in Spain. Declared a National Historical-Artistic Monument, it is included in the Munzer route as part of the rich Andalusian legacy. Located on Calle del Aguila.
