Iglesia Parroquial de San Bartolomé


Todolella

This church was built in the 13th-century and later modified and expanded in the 16th and 17th centuries. During the Spanish Civil War numerous precious objects disappeared from the church. 


It currently holds a late 15th-century Gothic processional cross of silver richly inlaid with enamel and with the stamp of Morella. It also preserves a relic of Bartholomew the Apostle from the 18th century.

The church has a Greek floor plan with a central dome, side exits and a bell tower located at the foot of the central nave. Its gable wall has a semi-circular roof, which was quite the architectural rarity for its time. Recent restoration works on the pictorial roof have produced some surprising and unexpected results at times. Due to its location at the foot of the castle, the church forms part of this monumental complex that crowns the village.
