Calahorra

It is in the suburb, on the banks of the Cidacos River, guarded by the Bishop's Palace and Paseo de las Bolas.

Origins. Several churches had previously been built on this site before. Renovation started on the former one towards the end of the 15th century and was not completed until 1900 with the placement of the high altarpiece, since the previous one was destroyed in the fire of the 13 June 1900. A large Atrium precedes the Cathedral. In the centre of the floor, the rose of the winds.

The façade: Baroque for some, neoclassical for others, built by the Brothers Raón at the end of the 18th century. It is conceived as an altarpiece of three bodies in a triangular pediment.

It is original, you must go down a few steps to enter it, perhaps because the previous churches had a doorway at the level of the river. When there was flooding in Cidacos, the Cathedral would be flooded and this, together with the building of the road or bridge, led to protection being built, raising the doors. This would explain these steps.

As soon as you enter the Cathedral, you are facing the Retablo de los Reyes, rococo-style. It consists of one body, three sections and a top section. Medallion of the Epiphany, relief of St Jerome and Cristo de la Agonía (which is carried in procession at Easter) are the works of Bazcardo.

Calahorra

This convent was founded in 1598 in Calahorra with barefoot nuns of the Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Many were the people who supported the construction of its church, which was consecrated in the year 1642, among whom we should mention the Bishop of Calahorra y La Calzada, Pedro Manso de Zúñiga and the head of the Patronazgo, José González de Uzqueta.

The monastery church is currently the only part of the convent which can be visited. Consecrated in 1642, it has a Latin cross floor plan, with clearly Carmelite origins, which follows the religious model of the early 17th c. /span>

The façade of the church has a typical Carmelite rectangle crowned by a triangular top with balls. Over the main doorway is a stone image of San José with the infant from 1649 which comes from Madrid, with eagles on either side holding the arms of the González de Uzqueta family.

The main altar is in the classic style from the first half of the 17th century, in the centre of the body, a group of sculptures of the Trinity and Holy Family in the Castilian style of the school of Gregorio Fernández. In the side panels and attic, paintings of the life of Santa Teresa.

In the side altarpiece, on the left you can admire an extraordinary carving of Christ tied to a column, by Gregorio Fernández from 1625 and an oil painting of Jesus Saviour of the World.

In the central nave there are two neo-gothic altarpieces with the images of Saint Teresa de Jesús on the right hand side and the Holy Family on the left.

In the southern arm of the transept a 1644 painting by Bartolomé Román depicting the martyrdom of St. Bartholomew and in the lower choir, a magnificent Romanist crucifix from the late 16th c., by the Portuguese sculptor Manuel Pereira.

The monastery has lodging with a spacious inner patio. The Carmelite nuns who live here make exquisite sweets and confectionery in the monastic tradition.
