Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de la Fuensanta

Sanctuary of Nuestra Señora de la Fuensanta Near the church of la Magdalena, situated in the former Huerta de Albacete, this magnificent sanctuary was built in the 15th century, on the exact spot where there was an apparition of the Virgin Mary. Most of the features of the Medieval building were covered over during the Baroque restoration, but some of them were recovered following the restoration projects in 1980. The original main façade is made of three diminishing sections decorated with square designs. The stone entrance has a triangular pediment and a balcony above it. Inside, the church is divided into three naves. At the head of the church stands the 15th century image of the sanctuary's patron saint. The small chapel and sacristy chapel are extremely attractive, and the latter has mural paintings.

Next to the sanctuary stands the shrine dedicated to the Virgin of la Fuensanta. It too was built in the 15th century, and has an interesting quasi-Gothic style created by the changes carried out by Mateo Inurria. The inside has a fascinating star-shaped cupola.
