What to see in Ragol


Church of Saint Michael

This is one of the first churches built in the Alpujarra of Almeria (1530), but it had to be rebuilt in 1594 after the destruction and burning by the Moorish rebellion in 1568.

Later it was totally destroyed during the violent earthquake of 1804, and it was moved to another place, where it was also destroyed in 1842. The rebuilding of the new church was delayed until 1861 and ended seven years later, thanks to economic contributions from the local population.
During the Spanish Civil War it was plundered of all its images, archives and objects of worship.

The church is of the simplest Mudejar church design.
