Martín Muñoz de las Posadas

Martín Muñoz de las Posadas, repopulated in the s. XI by Martín Muñoz, one of the Cid captains. In its stately semi-arcaded Plaza Mayor, ancient buildings remain such as the Renaissance Palace of the architect Gaspar de la Vega, which Cardinal Diego de Espinosa, inquisitor and minister of Felipe II, had built, printing luster on this population of peasants, ranchers and dealers, thus its Parish Church of Our Lady of the Assumption has a rich factory from the s. XVI, built on another primitive from the s. XIII, and houses a splendid canvas of the Virgen del Desprecio, from Rafael's school, the tomb of Cardinal Espinosa made by Pompeyo Leoni and other highly valuable sculptural works. However, his greatest treasure is "El Calvario", a painting by El Greco with a romantic story
