The Nuestra Señora de la Asunción Parish Church, near the castle, is built on an uneven piece of land. It has a magnificent masonry and beautiful doorways. The oldest part is Gothic – the head and the transept, with star vaults with intermediate ribs. The three naves have Doric columns and Renaissance semi-circular arches. The quadrangular tower, with four semi-circular arches for the bells, becomes octagonal in the second structure. Inside there are two magnificent 18th-century pulpits and a 16th-century baptismal font.

The doorways have a simple structure, but interesting decoration. The main one dates from the 17th century. The first thing you find is a semi-circular arch resting on Ionic columns, decorated geometrically with Mannerist-style rhombuses. In the centre there is a niche with a sculpture of the Inmaculada. It has another two doorways, both with semi-circular arches; the north one, which dates from 1570, has delicate candelabras at the ends of the cornice, which are attributed to Francisco del Castillo “el Mozo” and his brother Benito; and the south one, dated from 1620, with an oval coat of arms, wingwalls and a pinnacle.
