Church of El Salvador, in Santa Cruz de la Palma, on the island of La Palma, Canary Islands

Church of El Salvador (Santa Cruz de la Palma)

La Palma

Along one of the sides of the Plaza de España square stands the church of El Salvador, begun at the start of the 16th century. Highlights on the outside of the church include the Renaissance portico and an adjoining tower built of volcanic stone blocks. The building is divided into three naves covered in Mudéjar-style coffering. The main feature on the altarpiece of the high chapel – in the neoclassical style – is a painting of the Transfiguration by the Sevillian painter Antonio María Esquivel (19th century).
