Iglesia de la Inmaculada. Santa Eulalia

The Church of the Immaculate Conception is a Gothic-Renaissance style building built in masonry, combined with ashlars in the corners.

It has a single nave covered by a Gothic starred ribbed vault, chapels between the buttresses and a polygonal chancel. The Renaissance imprint is evident both in the half columns attached to the walls of the chapels and in the frieze above the keystones of the arches.

The façade is a clear example of Renaissance art. It is under a barrel vaulted portico with groined lunettes. It is one of the most beautiful of the Teruel Renaissance.

The Cruz de Término (boundary cross) dates from 1566 and is made of stone with an apostolate at the foot. It was placed next to the church. Until 1737-1738 it stood on the road to Cella, fulfilling its function as a boundary cross. During the Civil War it was moved to the village as a monument to the fallen.

The tower, located at the foot, has a first square body and another octagonal brick body, with Mudejar influence, which seems to be later.
