INFORMATION

The Collegiate of St. Patrick is the most important building in the historical monuments of the "Plaza de España". It is dedicated to the Irish St. Patrick because on 17 March in 1452, was fought the famous Battle of Alporchones. In this battle, the population of Lorca rose up and defeated the muslims of Granada, who had recently ravaged the city of Cartagena

The works began in 1533 by a papal bull by Clemente VIII. There were many problems and vicissitudes that resulted the delayed start of construction, wich practically did not begin until 1580. The works were completed in the eighteenth century.

The identity of the church desing architect is unknown, but the Collegiate has certain similarities with the Cathedral of Murcia, suggesting that is the same builder, Jeronimo Quijano, who was Major Master of the Cathedral. Both are Latin cross plan, divided into three naves, the central one is longer and higher than the aisles ones. At ghe sides of naves there open the side chapels. The aisles are extended to the head in a large ambulatory uniting around wich open chapels.

In this baroque facade highlights the plainly decoration of the two upper sections of the facade, clearly influenced by Jesuits. It also has some classical elements such as columns, niches, etc... that in front of the chaos of the baroque give a sense of order and harmony. The facade is the translation to the outside of the internal structure
