Church Nuestra Señora de la Victoria

The Church of Our Lady of Victory is located in the monumental village of Arahal, in Victoria St., just few minutes from other important religious monuments as the San Roque Church, the Convent of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Santo Cristo de la Misericordia Church.

Built on the site of a former hermitage dedicated to St. Sebastian, this stone, mansonry and adobe building is rectangular in shape and divided into three naves, separated by round arches that are suported by rectangualr pillars. The centra nave possesses a magnifificent roof in the Mudejar style.

Inside there are also five canvases with scenes from the life of St. Francis of Paola.

The main altarpiece is bas-relief in the baroque style, divided into three vertical sections by thin estipite columns. In the central section is an image of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the candelero (candlestick) style – wich means that the image is only carved from the waist up and supported on props, covered by her dress.

In the presbytery there are two large baroque paintings dedicated to the martyrs St. John and St. Sebastian.

Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Victoria. Perteneció al convento de las Mínimas, conservándose la iglesia y parte del claustro. Fundado por el Conde de Ureña en 1546, se construye una primitiva iglesia que será transformada durante el siglo XVII y en el XVIII se levanta su torre. En 1936 es incendiado el edificio aunque no sufre daños de gran importancia. La iglesia, formada por tres naves de cuatro tramos y cabecera poligonal, tiene pilares rectangulares sobre los que apoyan arcos de medio punto. Las cubiertas de la nave central, en artesa, y el presbiterio, ochavado, han sido restauradas recientemente. Las naves laterales se cubren con cielo raso, excepto la Capilla del Sagrario que conserva una cúpula. Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Victoria
