Iglesia Parroquial de San Pedro Apóstol - Provincia de Málaga y su Costa del Sol

Parish Church of San Pedro Apóstol


The San Pedro Apóstol parish church, built in the early seventeenth century, was extensively modified in the eighteenth century and even more so in the late nineteenth century, when its façade was rebuilt. Its interior has two naves and is notable, architecturally speaking, for the wooden roofs and the choir room. The church also contains several sculptures of great artistic interest, such as the Immaculate Conception from the seventeenth century and the images of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno (Our Father Jesus of Nazareth) and of the Virgen de los Dolores (Virgin of Sorrows), both from the eighteenth century and both very venerated by the Tapienses.

The church archives, which are considered to be among the most complete in the province, deserve special mention. They preserve registrations and baptismal and marriage books from since 1626, besides other kinds of Episcopal documents, censuses and testaments.

How to get here

From any place on the Costa del Sol, go to Málaga via the Mediterranean Expressway (A-7; N-340). In the provincial capital, take the route for Antequera-Granada-Sevilla-Córdoba by way of the A-45 (N-331) expressway. Just before arriving at Puerto de Las Pedrizas get into the right lane in order to continue towards Granada via the A-359 (the signs are very clear). When you get to the multiple intersection at Estación de Salinas get onto the A-333, which leads straight to Villanueva de Tapia.
