Iglesia de San Sebastián - Provincia de Málaga y su Costa del Sol

Church of San Sebastián


Since the Arab castle on Mount Porón no longer exists this town’s most outstanding monument is the parish church of San Sebastián. It was built in the first half of the eighteenth century and later underwent numerous alterations. Its interior is divided into three naves separated by semicircular arches resting on quadrangular pillars. In the square, main chapel, the decorated dome stands out for its multicoloured gesso works relating to the Assumption and the martyrdom of Saint Sebastian and other saints.

On its main façade the church has a curious lobed arch that ends in a triangle, while the tower is notable for its roof covered with blue glazed ceramic. The church, taken as a whole, is built to a very harmonious plan and shows great architectural simplicity.
