Church of Our Lady of the Assumption of Alsodux
(XVII Century). Our simple parish church of Our Lady of the Assumption welcomes us with its imposing on its horizontal urban fabric, with houses just one or two plants volume. Located at the entrance to the village and along the old canal from the source of the Holy Cross, it possibly justify its construction on the site of the old mosque, and the ditch serve as makeshift pile of ablutions to Muslims. We are facing the typical Mudejar church model suitable for small populations, plant a single nave, chancel and differentiated by armor covered by limabordón (four sides), but with the central almizate decorated with tracery work in the chapel greater. The walls have factory ashlar masonry reinforced corners, plus buttresses at the bedside, but we must emphasize multiple additions and repairs from the present church started in the early seventeenth century. The simple front foot is placed and formed an arch of stone and framework for full arch panels of Moorish tradition, while the simple tower bell suggests the structure of ancient Islamic minaret. But in fact, reminds us of its defensive nature in relation to the Moorish and crossbones danger, and so the ground floor is vaulted and the upper chambers have wrought wood that can be burned to the upper left as the last Christian stronghold. Indeed the early church of the first half of XVI was burned during the bloody Moorish rebellion in 1568 and rebuilt in the seventeenth century by the Duke of Maqueda within its stately obligations with taha de Marchena. The original baroque altarpiece of the main altar was burned in 1936, along with all the imagery, and a few decades ago was replaced by a front unfortunate, along with interior remodeling works to solve a serious problem in the covers. The result was the strengthening of the concrete side walls and especially hiding much of the transverse arch, which has been partially defaced the interior Mudejar.
On steep ravine ..
(XIX century). The next two stops are simultaneous in space because the Clock Tower stands at the age of Carmona. From the top of this tower dominates the town's urban fabric, but had no defensive function against potential enemies, as usual, but traditionally served as neighbors watch for when only the wealthy could afford the bourgeois luxury. Traditionally life was governed by the solar time, regulated by the shadow of a natural object (a stone or a tree), and in the best cases by a sundial. During the nineteenth century public clocks will be disseminated on the towers of the churches or public buildings dominate the urban fabric, as in this case.
