Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Almudena
The Parroquia de Nuestra Señora de la Almudena is located on Calle Escoriaza y Fabro 72, in the Delicias neighbourhood. This parish was built in 1964 to serve and evangelize in the neighbourhood that was growing at a very fast pace. It stands out among the buildings for its modernity and its symbolic depth. The structure of the church is in the form of a boat, the boat of the Church that is led through history by the Holy Spirit.
Parroquia de Nuestra Señora del Mar
Parroquia de Nuestra Señora del Mar is a modern and very well-maintained church which is tucked away, and unless you have directions, it can be hard to find.

Parroquia de San Francisco de Asís
The current Parish founded in 1821, occupies the Church of the old convent of San Francisco, one of the first to be founded in the city. The church was built by the Sevillian Pedro Llerena in 1518, although it was damaged during an attack on the city by the Dutch Van der Does.
