Church of St Mathew

The parish church of San Mateo in Gerindote, in the province of Toledo, is a remarkable example of Gothic-Renaissance architecture from the 16th century. Built on the remains of an ancient Romanesque church, it is notable for its Latin cross floor plan and the transept that continues into the apse. The central nave, with high vaulted ceilings and ornate columns, conveys a sense of spiritual recollection. The main altarpiece, dedicated to San Mateo, and the mural paintings add great historical and cultural value to the interior of the temple.

The main façade, decorated with sculptures of saints and biblical reliefs, reflects the rich history of the building. Among the elements of interest is the baptismal font carved in stone, while the main door, originally located next to the altar, has been closed. This building is not only a place of worship, but also a point of architectural and cultural interest for the local community and visitors.
