Casares – Old Encarnacion Church

The Old Encarnation Church ( today´s Blas Infante Cultural Center) is located inside the Castle grounds, in the Andalusian town of Casares.

This XVI century building is housed in the former Major Church of the Incarnation, which was constructed on the foundations of the Moorish fortress´old mosque. Originally the church had three naves separeted by semi-circular arches. The central nave was higher and the side chapels were attached to the wall. From its Islamic past, still remains a part of the minaret in the bell tower. It was built with a clear Mudejar style.

The church was in ruins since the 40´s. Thanks to an important task of rehabilitation and restoration, this historical and cultural building was recovered. This rehabilitation works respected the original spaces, adapting them to their new uses. Nowadays the building is conceived as a meeting point for culture, with rooms for exhibitions, and concerts, and a library among others.
