Religious Architecture

In Torrevieja there are various chapels, hermitages and small churches. Among them, however, stands out the Archpriestal Church of the Immaculate Conception, which is located in the Plaza de la Constitucion. Built in 1789, this church is characterized by several aspects. However, and without doubt, the most interesting aspects are the materials that were used for this construction. As you already know, Torrevieja has taken the name of an ancient watchtower, which was located in the area of the salt layers. The tower was destroyed by an earthquake, which the city had to suffer in 1829.

From an artistic point of view, this church was constructed in a neoclassical style, which is also the Latin cross included; this was covered by a barrel vault with sight holes in the center aisle and ridgelines on the wings. It contains images such as the Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception) in the central niche of the altarpiece. On the outside, there are two bell towers, complete with pyramid-like figures.
