Church of Santa María La Mayor, 17th century. The church of Santa María la Mayor is a simple 17th century Baroque style building with three naves. After the Civil War, the roofs were renovated with groin vaults, corresponding to each section of the central nave, with two chapels on each side in the side naves. The most outstanding feature of the church is the presbytery, a 16th century altarpiece from the hermitage of San Roque. According to an inscription, it was commissioned by the council of Argente when Juan Abril was vicar, and was finished on 20 July 1539. The altarpiece is attributed to Jerónimo Martínez (1539). The rest of the images are modern.

Hermitage of Santa Quiteria, 13 century, This is an extraordinary example of medieval religious architecture in the area. It is a mixture of late Romanesque building styles with elements of the new Gothic trend, seasoned by the Mudejar ways of doing things, both pictorially and in the use of brick.

Chapel of the Virgen del Campo. This is a Gothic-Renaissance construction from the 16th century. It is made of masonry combined with reinforced ashlars, both in the buttresses and in the pilasters that are preserved from the old portico that protected the doorway in the southern wall. Its sober exterior contrasts with the interior, which combines the new Renaissance pace with Gothic reminiscences.

Castle (14th century). It was built during the wars with Castile in the 14th century. All that remains of the original castle-shelter is a square tower, 5 metres on a side, with masonry work and ashlars at the corners.
