SOME THINGS NOT TO BE MISSED WHEN IN PIZARRA
The local museum has a permanent exhibition of antiques which belonged to the town"s residents, as well as the personal collection of the American abstract painter Gino Hollander, who found inspiration for her art in Pizarra.
The town"s noble mansion, that was home to the Counts of Puerto Hermoso. Their usual place of residence, the Counts of Puerto Hermoso´s Palace was built during the 20th century, in a style strongly influenced by Mudejar art, which was becoming popular during this period. This palace was well known among the high political circles and national institutions; among its guests was the King Alfonso XIII of Spain and The Pizarra Conference, an event which reunited Spanish politics after the Battle of Annual, was hosted there.
The main religious monument is the Church of San Pedro. It is characterised by the single nave and square ground plan of its bell tower. But its most distinguishing feature is the set of artworks kept inside: canvasses, altarpieces and carvings from different periods and a baptismal font dating back to the 17th century when it was built. http://www.visitacostadelsol.com/que-hacer/iglesia-de-san-pedro-apostol-p29551
The Hermanas de la Cruz convent was created by one of the founders of the municipality of Pizarra, the fifth Count of Puerto Hermoso. Here the Sisters of the Cross attended to the sick and the poor.
On the Castillejos de Quintana Hill, there is an archaeological site where we can find residences and tombs from the Mozarab period. Other findings of this nature include the pre-historic necropolis and the Roman bath, commonly known as ""El Bañadero de la Reina"" (The Queen´s Bath.)
