Church of Madre de Dios

This church, former Hospital of Nuestra Señora de La Mayor, is located in lands bought by the City in 1546. The work was directed by the architect Enrique Egas, El Mozo and was completed, for economic reasons, towards 1602 as indicated in its huge rose window.

In the interior, the arcades rest on six cruciform stone pillars, which have Tuscan style semi-columns with semicircular base attached to them.  Its three naves finish off with polygonal apses. The central apse is pentagonal and is covered with ribbed vaults; for its part, its side apses are carved with scallop shells (traditionally called conchs).  On the concrete wall, there are high windows framed by semi-circular arches, revealing its outstanding Renaissance style which contrasts with its stained glass windows, organic part of Gothic architectural design.

Outside, the temple is built in masonry and its façades are joined together by buttresses protruding from its sides which are linked to the general proportions of the church. Its main façade, which is framed by two thick buttresses, stands out by its large rose window made of brick and its triangular pediment.

The church has two Baroque entrances on the north and south sides and an unfinished tower planned in the 17th century by the architect Benito de Soto, a resident of Almagro.
