‘Olvera - Parish Church of Our Lady of the Incarnation’


The church of Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación in Olvera is located in the Plaza de la Iglesia, the highest square in town.
It’s a neoclassical construction that was completed in 1843.

The Plaza de la Iglesia offers a beautiful panorama of the city and the countryside.
You would think that the church is the highest building in Olvera. Yet there are even higher viewpoints, namely on top of the Moorish castle.

You would also have a beautiful view from the bell towers.
But I had no access to them, but at certain times it was possible to visit the interior of the church.

My photos were taken in the afternoon while siesta is still sacred in rural Andalucia.
So empty streets.
Sightseeing in Olvera means a lot of climbing in the streets.
I found the time appropriate as the sun was behind one of the church towers.
