Historical facts

Towards the year 1567 Don Cristóbal de Rojas y Sandoval, Bishop of the Córdoba diocese approved the decree ordering the construction of the new temple, the Church of Ntra.Sra. de la Asunción, according to the traces of Hernán Ruiz in close collaboration with Sebastián de Peñarredonda, who continued it a year later after his death.

However, this architect would leave a few years without directing the construction of the temple, having ceased as Master Master due to enmity with Bishop Don Antonio Pazos. Thus, in 1590, his brother Martín Ruiz and Juan de Ochoa took charge of the works, although for a short time, since in 1592 Hernán Ruiz took over the reins of the construction again, providing the traces of the tower that was intended to be built. In 1598 the works on the church were completed, except for the Perdón and Occidental portals.

Between 1631 and 1633 the tower was executed under the direction of Juan de Aranda Salazar.
