Incarnation Parish Church – Yunquera

The most representative religious monument  in Yunquera is the Parish Church of Our Lady of the Incarnation, built in 1505 as an annex to Tolox church. It still conserves the same name as the original church founded by the Catholic Monarchs. The remains of the Seminarian Duarte can be found inside. In 1601 the Mudejar style structure of the roof was repaired, but the large-scale restorations of later years were the cause of its total loss.

It has three naves separated by cross-shaped pillars, crowned by round arches with a very marked vault and a flat presbytery. The naves are covered by vaults that rest on pillars; the crossing is covered by a vault with eight ribs and a small semi-spherical cupola. The outside is very unassuming; the access is limited to a door with a round arch but no frame. The tower has four storeys with round arches on the two top levels. The corners of the top floor are bevelled. Inside, we can highlight a devotional tapestry of the Nazarene from the XVIII century.

The church is one of the largest in the Sierra de las Nieves disctrict and was built in the highest part of the town, overlooking the Islamic fortress.
