Church of Our Lady of Assumption

The church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción in Lapuebla de Labarca is a 16th century Renaissance architectural treasure, strategically located in the center of the town, marking its importance as a neuralgic point. Built with ashlar masonry, its rectangular structure houses a large nave divided into three sections, culminating in a polygonal octagonal apse. The main façade, an exponent of Renaissance style, has a portico with a large semicircular arch and a gallery flanked by two unequal towers. Inside, elements such as the Romanesque style altarpiece stand out, with sculptures and reliefs that show the transition from Renaissance to Baroque, as well as other altarpieces distributed along the nave.

The church also stands out for its connection with the history of the town, evidenced by its location over an old cemetery and its association with the historical communications of the region, such as the passage of the Ebro River to the lands of La Rioja. Designed by the master stonemason Juan de Astiasu, the structure has similarities with the church of San Andrés de Elciego. Its importance as a religious and cultural center is reflected in the artistic richness of its decorative elements and its role as a point of reference in the daily life and local history of Lapuebla de Labarca.
