Church of St. Bartholomew. (Iglesia de San Bartolomé)

At the heart of Murcia, in the San Bartolomé square, is this church. It was built in a neoclassical style. This was built between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. While the front side of the church is the seventeenth century.
It seems that in the eleventh century, at the site of this church was a mosque and a Muslim cemetery.
The interior of this church you can see a sculpture of Francisco Salzillo, our great sculptor (in 2007 we celebrate the 300 anniversary of his birth.).
The frescoes of the Altar Mayor were painted by Muñoz Barberán.
