1. Basílica Menor de San Ildefonso

Show sight on map

The Minor Basilica of the Sacred Parish Church of San Ildefonso is a Roman Catholic church in Jaén. It was erected in 1248 in the suburb of San Ildefonso, created after the expansion of the city's walled enclosure. It was consecrated to San Ildefonso de Toledo because at that time the church of Jaén was dependent on the archbishopric of Toledo. It is located in the square of the same name, which is presided over by a sculpture dedicated to the Immaculate Conception of Mary, carved in stone by Amadeo Ruiz Olmos on the occasion of the remodelling of the square in 1957. Following the "Descent of the Virgin" in 1430, this temple acquired great importance and became a sanctuary and, later, a minor basilica of the patron saint of the city.
