Show sight on map

The Basilica Menor de la Sacra Iglesia Parroquial de San Ildefonso is a Christian Catholic church in Jaén. It was erected in 1248 in the suburb of San Ildefonso, created after the expansion of the walled enclosure of the city. It was consecrated to San Ildefonso de Toledo because at that time the church of Jaén depended on the archbishopric of Toledo. It is located in the homonymous square, 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 remodeling 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.
