The facade of the convent church of La Merced, 1713, is a transposition of the naturalist decorativism interior of this church, typical of the works of the century, the continuation of schemes of the previous century.
The facade of the church has a curious legend of the special Virgin Mary who presides (she has twisted neck, being the stone representation of the popular Virgin of Remedies). It is said that a girl received a promise of marriage from a gentleman who went to war and when he returned he refused to keep his word.
