The Basílica de la Purísima de Yecla is one of the most emblematic buildings in the city, due to its monumentality and the artistic singularities that characterise it, such as the blue and white tiled dome, the paintings on the vaults by Manuel Muñoz Barberán from Lorca and the sculptural group of the Virgen de las Angustias, the work of Francisco Salzillo.
Popularly known as Iglesia Nueva, the history of its construction is a symbol of the will of the people of Yecla. The guided visit to the basilica is a unique opportunity to get to know one of the architectural jewels of the city of Yecla.
