Iglesia de Santa María, Cádiz
The Church of Santa Maria is part of the Franciscan order, first convent to be erected in the city. In 1527, was rebuilt after the Anglo-Dutch assault in 1596.
The church was built in two phases and was completed with a Latin cross pan. The facade features the portal and the bell tower, baroque work of 1670.
In the interior the main altarpiece is a highlight, gilt wood, made in 1765 and the Chapel of Jesus Nazareno, royalty of deep roots in the city. As a curiosity in the chapel you can see inscriptions in Armenian and Castilian, because part of its content was donated from there.
