San Martín an example of the Mudejar style in the town

Built outside the walls to the north of the walled enclosure, it is of Roman origin, as confirmed by the latest archaeological explorations. After the Roman building had been apparently ruined, it was rebuilt and radically transformed in the 16th century and at the beginning of the 18th century.

In the 14th century, the tower was built on a base made of granite ashlar work and an upper body made of brick. It also stands as a belfry of Gothic tradition and shows evidence of the Mudejar Masters. The pointed openings are of particular interest and are made of decreasing horseshoe archivolts set in a panel.

In the 16th century, the layout was completed and structured into three naves separated by semi-circular arches. In the 18th century, the Main Chapel was refurbished and the side chapel and semi-spherical cupola above the Presbytery were built.

Two Roman altar stones were reused in the south wall.

It was designated a National Monument in 1983.
