What to see in Fiñana


Church of the Annunciation

Church of the Annunciation (Fiñana - Almeria)
Considered one of the most important Mudejar style buildings in Almeria, the Church of the Annunciation was built on a Muslim mosque, like many other Catholic buildings in Andalusia.

It was built between 1540 and 1592, to conclude with a temple of three naves, separated from each other by rectangular pillars that support arches. In its interior rests the images of the Virgin of the Guide, Saint Peter and Saint Paul, all carved in marble and copies of the originals that were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.
Hundreds of tourists and locals visit the Church of the Annunciation annually, not only to participate in ecclesiastical acts or to manifest their Catholic devotion, but also to appreciate the Mudejar architecture, the beautiful details of the building and to discover among its walls the history hidden there.

Jesus Nazarene Hermitage

The Hermitage of Our Father Jesus Nazarene is another of the religious structures that has a large influx of visitors in Fiñana. It has existence data since 1505, but the analysis of the plaster pieces that are part of its construction have yielded data from the late 12th century.

It is of great attraction, especially for lovers of architecture, archeology, and history, because it is one of the few structures in Almeria that is in such a good state of conservation, despite its age and the inclement weather damage and the weather.
In 1986, a restoration of the building was carried out, but it was careful to be as noninvasive as possible, respecting the details of the hermitage, which has three naves. In the interior are pieces of Islamic plasterwork and an image of the Nazarene.
