Church of Saint Roch (Sufli - Almeria)
It is an ecclesiastical construction of great beauty, dating from the second half of the 16th century. It was built, like many of the clerical structures in which there were once Muslim inhabitants, on the remains of a mosque.

The church has been dedicated to the patron saint of the town, Saint Roch, which is revered by the inhabitants of Sufli, as well as residents of other towns who come to the church to pay homage, especially during the celebration of traditional festivities that the people carries out in his honor.
It is a rectangular building, with a single nave, an altar and a choir at its feet. The ship, although of simple characteristics, counts on walls of high altitude that is divided thanks to the use of columns that form a corridor that is the one that delimits the church of the vestry.

It is a small but striking building, dating from 1753, with a square and covered in the shape of a pyramid, decorated with tiles.
