The church facade follows the plans of Martín de Orinda
and offers an altar-style face divided into three sections of
columns separated by noble coats of arms and the sword of
St Michael slaying the dragon.
Excellent sculptures are distributed across the facade, with
the Magi crowning the frontispiece, a work by Raimundo
Capuz dating from 1700.
Also outstanding are the two severe Escorial-like towers,
which frame a facade of expressive effects and serenely
baroque composition, created in 1629 by Esteve Andreu
Ferrandis.
