Clock Tower

One of those places with history is the Clock Tower, which stands in the village as a symbol of its identity. It is a two-part construction, the first with a square floor plan and the second with octagonal corners, topped with an Arabic tile roof and a weather vane with the electrified clock bells. The tower was built on the remains of an old Arab tower and houses a mechanical clock dating from 1855, which will soon be working again.


San Ramón Nonato Parish Church


Another building worth visiting is the Parish Church of San Ramón Nonato, located in the main square of the village. It is a neoclassical church, built in the 15th century on the site of a former mosque. Its white façade with a lintelled doorway and an oculus above it, as well as its three-part bell tower, stand out. Inside, several religious images of great artistic value are preserved.


Calvario Hermitage

Not far from the church is the Ermita del Calvario, a small temple located on a hill from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the village and the valley. The hermitage dates from the 18th century and has a rectangular floor plan with a single nave covered by a barrel vault. Its façade features a belfry with two arches for the bells and a cross at the vertex.


Old Railway Station of Zurgena

Finally, if you want to know a little more about the recent history of Zurgena, you can visit the Old Railway Station, located in the Alfoquía neighbourhood, one kilometre from the town.
