Church of San Miguel (Ágreda)

The Church of San Miguel has a Gothic style and although the building as it is today was constructed in the 16th century, it was erected over a previous building dating back to the 12th century that still maintains its original crenellated Romanesque bell tower. The current Hispano-Flemish façade is faced with a pointed bell-shaped entrance and on its tympanum lay Saint Michael’s niche. It was originally located on the left side but was transferred in 1735.

 

This church is a noteworthy work of art from the Spanish Renaissance period and it is made up of a base, a bench, a nave with five rows and two floors, and an attic with ridges.It has only one great nave that is filled with pilasters and on top of them, there are pointed archways that intertwine with the Gothic ribbing decorated with the coat of arms of the founder. The walls in the heptagonal sanctuary only have two windows and are covered by a Hispanic-Flemish starred dome where you can see the coat of arms of Doctor Carrascón, the benefactor. In that precise spot, there is a true gem of Plateresque artwork: the altarpiece of Saint Michael the Archangel.

 

There are thirteen tempura paintings that depict passages of the Passion of Christ, the life of Saint Michael the Archangel and the Expulsion from the Garden of Eden. In the central niche, there is a majestic statue of Saint Michael the Archangel that watches over the temple and its six chapels and eight lateral altars which were founded by the most important families in the village.
