San Felipe de Neri OratoryCuenca (Cuenca)GPS: 40.075599670410156, -2.132050037384033
A small Baroque church that, despite its not too flamboyant outside, inside it enjoys magnificent decoration in a rococo style which covers entablatures, ledges, pilasters, spires and the small side chapels. It is a church with one nave in a Latin-cross layout, the inside ceilings are of barrel vaults with lunettes which frame false windows and the transept is covered by gabled walls.
Paid for by Álvaro Carvajal y Lancáster, archdeacon of Moya, and built in 1739, the work of architect José Martín de Aldehuela, the San Felipe Neri church manages the Oblatos convent and together they make up an important architectural ensemble.
Incidentally, on dates in Cuenca such as Easter, the night of Good Friday, on the church steps of San Felipe Neri, the Miserere is sung, with tourists and Nazarenes as witnesses.
From Monday to Saturday at 6:30pm. Sundays and bank holidays at 11am and 1pm.
