The Parish Church of San Vicente Martir was built in Gothic-Mudéjar style in the first half of the 14th century.

All that remains from the mediaeval temple is the general structure, the pillars supporting pointed arches and the chapel of Las Siete Palabras.

On the lintel there is an inscription: "Domus Dei et Porta Celi" (House of God and Doorway to Heaven). On one side of the doorway there is a tombstone alluding to the Death of San Isidoro, another to the desecration of Gunderico and a tile representing the passage of the Seven Words and on the other side, a ceramic altarpiece dedicated to Nuestro Padre Jesús de las Penas.

On the façade of the temple on the Gospel side (Plaza de Teresa Enríquez), there is the window corresponding to the Sacramental Chapel of the temple, richly decorated and crowned with a Monstrance in the upper part, and a simple brick doorway with a semi-circular arch.

The interior of the temple features a basilica floor plan with three naves, divided into four sections, with a broad presbytery and a main doorway at the foot. It is supported by pillars crowned by pointed arches.

The main altarpiece was the work of Cristóbal de Guadix (1690-1706) and is completed with a Calvary. The image of Christ is by Roque Balduque and Juan de Giralte, carved in the mid-16th century, while the Virgin and Saint John is from the Roldán workshop and dates back to 1704.

The Santísimo Cristo de Las Siete Palabras presides over the Chapel of the Hermandad de Las Siete Palabras brotherhood, and at his feet there is an effigy of Nuestra Señora de los Remedios and San Juan Evangelista.

Inside the chapel there is a magnificent painting of the Virgen de los Remedios by Pedro Villegas Marmolejo (about 1590).

There should also be special mention for the chapel of the Hermandad de las Penas brotherhood and the altar dedicated to the Virgen del Rosario
