Very Good

This church was founded in the 14th century and its design is part Gothic and part Renaissance. The portal was designed by the architectural genius Andres de Vandelvira. The Chapel of Dean Ortega is very nice. When we went the priest allowed us to see it before he left on some business, so I have to thank him for doing us this favor.

The Church of San Nicolas de Bari was constructed in the second half of the 14th century. The church has three naves and the main altar end of the church is in the shape of a polygon. This church is the best example of the Andalusian Gothic. The vaults are supported by thick pillars with capitals that have vegetal motifs. In 1496 the Bishop Luis Osorio added the Capilla (chapel) de la Purisima Conception. The sacristy was designed by Andres de Vandelvira in 1566. The most impressive chapel is the Chapel of Dean Ortega. Fernando Ortega y Salido was the Dean of the Cathedral of Malaga and the head priest of the Holy Chapel of El Salvador. It was meant to be the burial place of his ancestors. The chapel was finished in 1537. The grill was made by Juan Alvarez de Molina and gilded and painted by Antonio de Aquilis. The altarpiece was made by Lorenzo Brogio. The entrance to the chapel was designed by Andres de Vandelvira. The design is Plateresque. There is a triumphal arch with Doric columns. There are praying figures of the fathers of Dean Ortega and mortuary motifs. The main entrance facing south has concentric pointed arches. On top is the image of Saint Nicolas de Bari. The other entrance facing west was designed by Andres de Vandelvira. The design is that of a triumphal arch supported by columns. There is a tympanum with the figure of Saint Nicolas. There is a tympanum with the figure of the Eternal Father and the sculptor was Lorenzo Brogio.
