Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Santa María de la Estrella Church


This is the oldest church in the town. It is listed as a Site of Cultural Interest. It was built in the Mudéjar-Gothic style in the late 13th century with baroque additions. The church consists of a nave and two aisles covered by a wooden coffered ceiling. The polygonal chancel with a vaulted ceiling occupies the apse.

Although it has undergone an extensive renovation and restoration works throughout its history, the church in its current state is an exceptional example of the Lower Andalusia architecture in the 14th century.

It is believed that the origin of the building is associated with a miracle that took place in Coria del Rio. His inspired King Alfonso X of Castile to compose his famous Canticles in honour of the Our Lady of Coria.
