Iglesia de la Madre de Dios y Convento RR.PP Franciscanos

14900 - Lucena (Córdoba)
Although the church was founded in 1558, its current appearance corresponds to the works carried out in 1620 by the master builder from Málaga, Francisco de Lucena, on an old medieval hermitage. A simple Mannerist cover gives way to a large nave with a Latin cross plan, with side chapels, centred on a high luminous hemispherical dome. The main altar is presided by a beautiful Solomonic baroque altarpiece, made by José Matías Sánchez, on traces by Leonardo Antonio de Castro. Likewise, the minor altarpieces and a remarkable imagery stand out, highlighting several images attributed to Pedro de Mena and the image of Nuestra Señora de Las Angustias (Our Lady of Sorrows), a Pieta made in 1799 by Blas Molner. The annexed convent is organized around a beautiful courtyard with a square plan and large dimensions formed by two cloisters, high and low, with arcades on Doric columns in the lower and Ionic in the upper, and centred with a monumental plant source mix-linear and baroque pillar of double cup, from the early seventeenth century.
