The church of La Iglesia de San Estebán dates from 1569 and its construction was the work of the Portuguese nobleman Esteban de Almeida, who upon his arrival in Murcia, was appointed bishop of Cartagena.
The sign of times has taken its toll on the church. In 1978, the local deputation asked local architects for the budget of the rehabilitation of the church. The local architect, Félix Santiuste de Pablos, has been working on this project from 2009-2019. And when it came to the restoration of the century old flooring, which has served its duty, he chose full length planks in Dinesen Douglas to underline the grandness of the long church room.
