The Basilica Of Nuestra Señora De Los Desamparados

Main image
This temple, built upon the ruins of the Roman forum and dedicated to the patron of the city, is linked to the cathedral by way of a Renaissance arch. Everything inside revolves around the statue of the Virgin, a Gothic sculpture with the head leaning slightly to one side, and covered with a robe and jewels. In the XVIII century, the two innocents who are at her feet were added, and the whole thing is now set upon a mechanical device which allows the statue to revolve. The central nave is covered by an oval-shaped dome, with frescos painted by Antonio Palomino.
