A rather plain exterior for a church of this size , but, you must go inside as the intricasy of the stonework is truly wondrful. Main alter and some smaller chapels. Well worth visiting.

This is a beautiful church which will not be obvious when you look at it from the outside, the small chapels and main alter are true works of art with intricate details, it is very cheap to get in, but you need a good 45...More

A lady working at our Hotel lived in this fine city of many churches, so with limited time and wanting to climb up to the fort, we asked her which of so many churches we should visit. She said Carmen. It is ornate with high...More

Despite the rather plain exterior, the inside of this church makes for a delightful visit - the bright colors and general design make the interior a lot less "heavy" than most Baroque interiors. The wooden altarpiece is a marvel of carving and alone is worth...More

This church was heavily decorated and no doubt when lights are on is well worth a visit but during our visit it was a bit too dark to fully appreciate it.

We dashed to see this church before it closed at 13.30 and were so glad we did. The ceiling is superb as is the amazing carved altar.

Antequera has thirty churches and I think this is the best to visit.Situated in the old town with magnificent views. The whole church is very ornate with the highlight being the magnificent redwood altar.A testament to the extreme wealth of the Catholic church

Although hyped as a must see, we thought the church disappointing and not worth the €2 entry fee. Yes the altar is ornate but due to bad lighting not very visible. For ornate churches, the grand cathedrals of Málaga or Seville are far better options....More
