Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Aurora

C/ Dean Padilla, 1 14800 Priego de Córdoba (Córdoba)
957700625
Former hermitage of San Nicasio, has its origin in the fifteenth century . Reformed in the eighteenth century by Juan de Dios Santaella. It has a rectangular plan, the vault with five half-barrel sections with windows, the high choir being placed on the first and, at the head, a half-orange dome on pendentives. The sections of the vault are projected to the ground by means of pilasters in which are placed the plaster carvings of San Pedro, San Pablo and the Evangelistas. In the interior it is difficult to find a free space due to the exuberant Baroque decoration that it presents, that covers the dome and vault, also distributed around the windows. It mixes geometric moldings , plant motifs and an abundance of half-body angels, all highlighted by a strip of blue. The altarpiece consists of a bench, a body and an attic, divided into three streets by complicated stipes. In the attic is the niche of the image of San Nicasio, topped by two large volutes.
