Church of San Miguel

The church of San Miguel Arcángel in Rincón de Soto is a monument of great importance in the town, built mainly in brick in the first half of the XVI century, with later contributions in Baroque style in the XVII and XVIII centuries. The structure has a nave with several bays, a transept and an octagonal choir, decorated with semicircular arches, pilasters, corbels and a rich diamond decoration on the exterior. The side chapels stand out, such as the Chapel of Christ, built between 1651 and 1657 by Juan de Alfaro and Domingo Usabiaga, and the baptistery with a baptismal font and a small altarpiece of the Annunciation.

Inside, the church houses an impressive collection of altarpieces, paintings and works of art dating from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. The main altarpiece, decorated with Corinthian columns and a variety of religious images, is a remarkable piece. There are also works by artists such as Juan Bautista de Wael, with his canvas of the Assumption, and a variety of Baroque sculptures, such as the Virgen del Carmen and San Roque. The church of San Miguel de Rincón de Soto is an important testimony to the religious and artistic history of the region, and stands out for its architecture and valuable artistic heritage.
