The Church of Santa Maria de Betancuria was originally built in a Gothic style in the early 15th century. The subsequent reconstruction and restoration works led to a rather mixed structure combining Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque elements. The edifice has had a rather troubled historic trajectory, being destroyed around the 16th century, a situation which resulted in the decision of restoring it. The nowadays church is the direct consequence of those works. It is located nearby the Museum of Sacred Art of Betancuria. The church is opened to visitors from 10am to 16pm.
The Betancuria Museum complements the attraction hotspot of the city. Visiting this museum is a chance to discover the traces of the past of Betancuria.
