Lucena information

Although Lucena appears to be entirely comprised of furniture factories and outlets, the old town hosts many exquisite churches reflecting its importance in the Subbetica of Baroque times.

Lucena village

The present day courthouse, the Palacio de los Condes was an eighteenth century palace, and has a striking marble entrance, two interior courtyards and impressive plasterwork. Lucena's main church is that of San Mateo, a Gothic-Renaissance work from the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries. The Renaissance altarpiece is by Jeronimo Hernandez and Juan Bautista Vazquez the Elder. But it's the Capilla del Sagrario which is the most important part of the church, ranking with the Sagrario de la Asuncion in Priego as one of the high points of Andalusian baroque. It was built between 1740 and 1772 and boasts a stunning entrance of encrusted marble. Laid out in an octagon, it has a central shrine and exquisitely painted plasterwork.

Lucena village

Other landmarks are the Palacio de los Condes de Hust in the old Jewish Quarter, and the Iglesia y Hospital de San Juan de Dios boasting a splendid marble entrance and typically Baroque altarpiece and plasterwork. Worth a visit too is the Santuario de Nuestra Señora de Araceli, a hermitage whose chapel is considered to be one of the finest examples of Baroque art in the province. Also the Castillo del Moral, or former prison of Boabdil - the tourism office is there now - and the sixteenth century Parroquia de Santiago built on the site of the former synagogue.
