Cañada Rosal Monuments
Parish Church of Santa Ana whose construction was funded in the year 1977-1978 by its inhabitants, involving various artistic styles that give it a very peculiar appearance. Inside, we have to emphasize the creation of its images by the great carver Emilio Castruchi and also highlight our unique “Christ Crucified”, who was burned and restored in the Franco era. On the altar we find the picture of “San Antonio” from the XVII century severely weakened over the years and in the sides you can see a collection of pictures with the twelve apostles made by a painter from the town, Pablo Martín. Outside, on one sides of the church we can observe a beautiful alley, called “Flores Pistón” in honour of the priest who got his uprising. This alley is now decorated with flowers whose care and maintenance is borne by the people.
