Miraflores de la Sierra

Nuestra Señora de la Asunción Parish Church - Miraflores de la Sierra

It was raised on a space where previously lay another church built between 1419 and 1481. The actual ensemble is a succession of addendums: the tower, the presbytery and the transept, three naves, two porticos oriented to the north and the south respectively and a series of chapels adjoining to the aisle naves. The tower is from the old building, dated in the 15th century, being the only preserved element. It is masonry built with ashlars piers at the corners, and two bodies separated by a curved impost. Both outer arcade atriums and the naves at the inner church are beautiful examples of the 18th century neoclassicism. There is as well at the inner church a 1492 baptismal font.
