About the Church of El Salvador, Nerja

The Church of El Salvador (The Saviour) was built in the Andalusian Baroque and Mudêjar styles in the 16th century (1505). Then enlarged in the 19th century. It has undergone a number of overhauls, notably in 1997. The highlight of the exterior is the square tower with its perpendicular belfry. Inside, it features three spacious, well-lit naves. The centre nave is crowned by a wooden vault while its lateral counterparts have arris and Roman vaults.

This is definately on your list of ‘must see’ attractions when you rent your Nerja villa or apartment. I haven’t put up any interior photographs because I want you to see it with your own eyes. It really is a fantastic building with amazing decor and artifacts.
