Convent Church of San Martín (San Agustín)

Calle San Pedro, 2, 14900 Lucena, Córdoba, España
This church belongs to a community of Augustinian Recollect nuns, whose foundation dates back to 1639, although the works of this extraordinary building began in 1669 on traces of the local architect Juan Trujillo Moreno, being completed in 1726, after receiving the last impulse director by part of the architect Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo, who made the impressive covers. Its main space is, precisely, a monumental elliptical enclosure of longitudinal arrangement, a scheme that is also repeated in its high dome raised in a drum. Inside, the main altarpiece stands out, made in 1730 by Martín de los Reyes, as designed by Francisco José Guerrero, notably influenced by the stylistic models of Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo. Likewise, five minor altarpieces, by the same author and projector, occupy the walls of the ellipse floor.
