This is a magnificent temple with a main altarpiece that was made between 1490 and 1503. It is one of the most beautiful works of art you can find in all of Aragon. The altarpiece is made up of sculptures in which you can see Christ, the Virgin Mary and other saints, accompanied by angels. Just above it is the Virgin in prayerful attitude on a crescent moon – remember Bolea’s Muslim past – and flanked by angels. Above we see a crucified Christ accompanied by the Virgin and Saint John. They are not the only carvings; there are saints and angels with the shield of Bolea.
We can also see a spectacular work of art from the beginning of the Renaissance period. It is unknown who painted this extraordinary altarpiece that reminds us of flamenco-style paintings for the richness of its colours. But currently, we still do not know the identity of this Master Painter of Bolea.
On the altarpiece, from top to bottom, you can see the story of Christ from the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, through to the last supper and the crucifixion.
