Monuments

The most notable monument in Riogordo is la Church of Our Lady of Grace, from 1490. The temple has a basilica plan, with naves separated by semicircular arches. Its dressing room and its square tower, with a four-sided roof, are the most outstanding elements of the temple.

On the same street as the church is the Ethnographic Museum. Its facilities, located in an old mill, include oil and flour mills, cellars, a wine room, a wine press, elements of a 19th century house, and a chapel from El Paso de Riogordo.

Strolling between manor houses and whitewashed houses, you come to the hermitage of San Sebastián or Jesús Nazareno. This 17th century building consists of a nave covered by a barrel vault with richly decorated lunettes. The dressing room with the image of the Nazarene is a true Baroque jewel.

Other signs of religious devotion are the thirteen chapel-niches scattered around the town and the mural dedicated to El Paso de Riogordo.
