The church of San Antonio de Padua in the village center, catches the attention of visitors by their large size compared to a rather small urban district that is home to about 300 inhabitants. It may be hyperbole to call it the "Cathedral of the Highlands", but that's how it is popularly known.

It is indeed a large building whose construction began in the sixteenth century on the orders of Diego de Deza, archbishop of Seville, although the structure presented today for the eighteenth century, after a reconstruction. The building has a basilica and is divided into three naves covered with barrel vaults and dome-topped cruise. Two stout octagonal towers outside the harmonious balance of the factory.
In the basement of the temple is a cemetery in which they arise "corpses embalmed and intact, "according to popular tradition. It is true, however, that in the crypt of the church there are two well-preserved mummies belonging, apparently, a couple who contributed financially to the building.
