The St John Baptist Church must have been founded after the Christians conquered Marchena. It is likely linked to the presence of the Order of St John, first documented in the 13th century. Only the chapel under the tower remains from that original Church.
This 14th-century church is dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. It was built in the Mudejar style with a nave and two aisles, divided into four bays, plus a rectangular sanctuary. The decorative wooden ceiling is more recent as the original fell into disrepair at the beginning of this century.
