Church of Corvera

Corvera was founded around 1636 (although remains of Iberian and Romans have appeared on surroundings).

With a population of just over eight hundred inhabitants dedicated to the production of cereal, oil and cattle, in the different hamlets scattered throughout its vast territory, also dedicated to hunting.

The church stands out for its square bell tower, and the white color with which it is painted. It has an emotional plaque to Don Antonio Pujante Alcaraz, parish priest of Corvera martyred by militiamen in 1936 

The Church on image is dedicated to the Virgen del Rosario, an advocation which is linked to the Dominican order and has become widespread since the 16th century, serving the community in the village itself and surrounding areas.
