The Church of Nuestra Señora del Socorro began to be built in the early 20th century. It occupies the space where a 16th century Hermitage was demolished to build the new temple.

It is an Eclectic style church, which was been given a deliberate Medieval, Romanesque and a Mudejar look, with canted arches and bricks. Curiously, the funds raised for its construction came from the sale of materials recovered from the Hermitage and from donations from neighbors.
