Almeria – Parish Church of San Pedro
Parish Church of San Pedro
Inside, the temple has three naves with vaults on pillars of the Ionic order and a choir at the foot. Lacking a transept and dome, the longitudinal direction of the interior space is enhanced and provides an academic cut effect. The main nave is supported by thick buttresses with a rectangular floor plan. It is made up of five sections, the last serving as a cross from which four steps start, which raise the semicircular head area. Five pairs of chapels complete the side naves.
Outside, the church has a façade at the foot with a central body between setback towers. This setback produces the protrusion of the central volume with a portico, very close to the typical porticoes of the purest neoclassical buildings. The strong classicism of the rest of the components of the façade, its concern for proportions, some ornamental forms, even the combination of stonework and brick, put this work in relation to the school of Juan de Villanueva.
