Located barely 300 meters from the Main Square of Ciudad Real, the Church of Saint Peter is one of the most prominent temples for its historic-artistic value. Its construction began in the later half of the 14th century and was not finished until the 15th century (although subsequent work has been constant).

It is a temple with three naves separated by robust pillars and pointed arches, with a seven-sided apse covered by a ribbed vault, and three funerary chapels of which the chapel of Don Fernando Alonso de Coca, chaplain of the Catholic King and Queen, located in the nave on the right, especially stands out. Within the chapel we find two exceptional alabaster pieces: an altarpiece dedicated to Our Lady of Loretto and a sepulcher that can stylistically be connected to Master Sebastián of Toledo. The exterior has a very simple tower that has undergone many retouches and three entrances, although the most interesting of these is the one that is at the foot of the church (the Door of Forgiveness).
