Saint Sebastian Church (Almeria)

Saint Sebastian Church (Almeria)

The church takes its name from the square in which it resides. In the 11th century, this square was one of the most popular places in all of Almeria; a true crossroads for all the residents' activities.

The church was a mosque in the time of Muslim Almeria, and in Christian Almeria, it became the Saint Sebastian Hermitage.

The current temple has two roofs and was built in the 17th and 18th centuries, with a predominantly baroque style. Other important elements are the dome and the lateral buttresses. On the main altar is an image of the Christ of Love and a mural on the ceiling, made by Jesús de Perceval.
