The Iglesia de San Lázaro Obispo is located on the 14th century Christian, dedicated to Saint Lazarus, yet possibly built on the old mosque.
The temple was extended in the 16th century under the patronage of the Marquis of los Velez. It was rebuilt in the first half of the 18th century with Baroque architectural aesthetics, highlighting its facade-altarpiece made of ashlar, divided into a three part Baroque facade-altarpiece, made from an advanced Baroque alcove and two towers, one of the three parts has a bell tower and a clock, and the other two are unfinished.
The inside consists of a single nave with a barrel vault, lunettes and a rocky decor. On the transept, a dome rises over the pendentives with paintings of the four Evangelists, made by Silvestre Martinez Teruel in the 18th century.
Its neoclassical character is reflected in the Communion or Rosary chapel, the sacristy and the safe-keeping room of San Lázaro, works made during the transition between the 18th and 19th centuries, under the supervision of architect Lorenzo Alonso's.
