Plaza de la Asunción.

Spanish name: Iglesia Vieja de la Asunción

Old Church of the Assumption The Asunción Temple, locally known as Iglesia Vieja or old church, was built in 1512 and completed 40 years later. A distinctive feature of the temple is its rectangular floor, a single Gothic ward with a ribbed vault and chapels between the buttresses. Five of the layout sections are Gothic and the sixth one is of Renaissance style.
 
During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939), the temple was attacked and the set on fire. As a result, the inside was destroyed and burned and many paintings and sculptures disappeared. The main architectural characteristic of the temple is its Renaissance tower, with a number of features of beauty, style and harmony.
