Saint Miguel Church is a building from the 18th century which consists on one single nave, covered with a tube with “fajones” vault, afterwards being added to it another one by the left side.
It presents a main altarpiece that consists on three passages between “estipites”, that frame the sculpture of Saint Miguel Archangel, also dating from 18th century. To the left it appears Saint Antonio and to the right Saint Gema, dating about 1800.
On the left lateral nave there is another altarpiece of “estipites” dating from the second half of the 18th century with the image of the Virgin of El Rosario.
Moreover, in the same lateral nave is located, in a niche, a sculpture of candlestick of Jesus Nazareno, a work made by the native of Antequera sculptor Diego Márquez y Vega, dating from 1788, and the altarpiece of the Virgin of Los Dolores.
NOTE: “Fajón”: arch which supports a vault.
“estipites”: quadrangular columns in the shortened pyramid form, with the smaller base downwards.
