Spanish name: Iglesia de Santa Ana

Iglesia de Santa Ana Although the Anas convent was erected in the 15th century, this church was built in the 18th century by Fray Antonio de San José and Toribio Martínez de la Vega.
The church has a Latin cross floor plan with vaulted chapels between the buttresses, a typical layout of Murcian architecture at the time. On the side wards and tribunes, there is a cross under a dome on pendentives.
The Baroque decoration inside the temple is beautiful. The woodcarver José Ganga Ripoll created the plasterwork decorating pilasters and the altarpiece, in which the prestigious sculptor Francisco Salzillo participated.
