Parroquia de Santiago

Santiago 14900 Lucena (Córdoba)
The parish church of Santiago, of Gothic-Mudejar style, began in 1503, by testamentary disposition of García Méndez de Sotomayor, the Commander of the Order of Santiago. Traditionally it has been considered as an old Jewish synagogue, but possibly in its construction materials were reused from the then recently demolished old temple of San Mateo, where the ancient synagogue and mosque could actually be. The church has a rectangular floor plan; it has three naves divided by octagonal pillars that support pointed arches of brick with alfiz (architectonic adornment, consisting of a moulding, usually a rectangular panel, which encloses the outward side of an arch). The three naves are covered with reconstructed coffering following the original model. Today, decorated in harmony with the Mudejar style of the rest of the temple, el Cristo de la Columna (the Christ tied to the Column) is worshiped in it, work of the famous Sevillian sculptor Pedro Roldán, made in the 17th century, and Our Lady of Hope.
