Saint Michael's Church, Medina del Campo: Overall view, with bridge
Architecture Library, Hesburgh Libraries
The church was built beside the wall gate of the old town, opposite the original city hall, which no longer exists. The oldest parts are Mudéjar-Gothic style; but was renovated several times. The present building dates from the 16th century, with alterations in the 18th century. It has a rectangular plan with a wide nave and another lateral aisle and an attached bell tower. The interior is baroque with two retables; the high altarpiece by Leonardo Carrión and a baroque altarpiece from the 18th century, decorated with a multitude of tiny mirrors. It is also noted for its Baroque 18th century organ.
