lglesia de Guadalupe
Concluida a principios del sigo XVIl, es uno de los mejores ejemplos de Talavera y ladrillo en la ciudad. La entrada está enmarcada por un gran arco recubierto totalmente de azulejo de Talavera azul y blanco, con figuras geométricas entrelazadas y estrellas.

Los tableros colocados a los lados de la entrada muestran las apariciones de la Virgen de Guadalupe, y los cuatro son medallones enmarcados por motivos florales en azul y portan en la parte inferior fragmentos de la frase del Papa Benedicto XIV, “Non fecit talliter omni nationi”, “No hizo nada semejante por otra nación”. El interior es sencillo, transformado al neoclásico en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX. En la capilla anexa dedicada a la Virgen Dolorosa, se conservan intactas las yeserías que forman grutescos donde sobresalen ángeles y otras formas típicas del barroco exuberante.
