The Church of San José was built as a parish church in the area outside the city walls in the late 18th century.

It is the work of Torcuato Benjumeda and has a Latin cross plan. Outside there is a statue of San Jose made out of marble, contemporary to the church and on both sides of the facade bell towers are located.

Inside, the current altarpiece responds to the Solomonic aesthetic, although its current aspect responds to a nineteenth-century classicist intervention. Highlighted are the designed rock gardens and the paintings of the Ecce Homo and the Dolorosa that frame the tabernacle and a carving of the Immaculada mid-18th century.
