Church of St Peter of Antioch

The Church of San Pedro de Antioquía de Gallur, an imposing 18th century building with neoclassical and baroque influences, represents an important architectural landmark in the region. Its single-nave structure, of great proportions and height, is a testimony to the splendor of the sacred architecture of the time. Its barrel vaults with lunettes and its flat chancel stand out, as well as the presence of the choir loft at the foot, elements that reflect both the functionality and the beauty of its interior design. On the exterior, the brick and masonry façade together with the tower, added in 1944, testify to the evolution of the church over the centuries, while the brick façade with its semicircular arch and concave corbels adds a touch of classical elegance.

The main altarpiece, dating from the 18th century and of baroque style with classicist elements, is an impressive work of art that occupies a central place in the church. With its polychrome sculptural images and gilded decoration, the altarpiece pays homage to the dedication of the temple and figures such as St. Peter, St. Paul, St. Francis Xavier and St. Michael the Archangel. The church is not only a place of worship, but also a symbol of identity and heritage for the community of Gallur, as evidenced by the numerous visits and the special care devoted to its conservation and restoration.
