Saint Jose Church
It was part of the Augustinian convent of which only the Church remains, the last remains of its cloister disappeared with the construction of the neighboring hotel.
Its current state has been altered in the continuous restorations suffered, however, its trace is worthy.
The Church and the rest of the disappeared enclosure correspond to the monacal foundations of Cazorla throughout the S.XVIII.
It has a single room «hall» floor, side chapels and rectangular presbytery; Its vault is half-barrel supported by pillars and on the altar a large dome supported by scallops. The only decorative elements it presents are capitals of the Ionic order in the pillars. The interior walls were decorated in the middle of this century, with copies of religious scenes of paintings by El Greco. Also inside and next to the altar, the shrine chapel stands out, where the Virgen del Rosario is installed, covered with a baroque decorated dome.
Like all the temples of our city, it suffered the effects of the confiscating laws, in addition to the catastrophic plundering and destruction during the Civil War, so that its altarpiece and interior appearance are from this century. The Church and the rest of the disappeared enclosure correspond to the monacal foundations of Cazorla throughout the 17th and early 18th centuries. Inside there are beautiful carvings of Navas Parejo, Lastrucci Castle … Six large canvases, copies of works by El Greco, made by Rafael del Real, decorate the temple. The main altarpiece is the work of Valeriano Martínez from Burgos.
