With its colourful brick walls and beautiful arches, this Christian church looks as lovely as the little square where it is located. It was erected in honour of the martyrs Ciriaco and Paula, patrons of the city, after the Spanish conquest in 1487. The eclectic architecture is especially noticable inside the church. The exuberant Rococo elements and the Baroque style vault are a result of several reforms, and somewhat in contrast with its Gothic-Mudejar origins, of which the tower outside is a nice remanent.
