The archpriestly church of Santiago de Villena is located in the Plaza de Santiago in that city. Construction began in the fourteenth century, although its current appearance dates from the sixteenth century. It is the largest and most important church in Villena, and it is one of the most important Gothic-Renaissance ensembles in the Valencian Community, since it formed the archetype of the architectural school of Valencian Gothic that had wide regional resonance.
