Osuna’s period of splendour was in the 16th and 17th centuries and this can be seen in the buildings. Examples include the University, the Ducal Pantheon and the Collegiate Church. The Museum of Religious Art in the Collegiate Church of Santa María de la Asunción houses several paintings by José de Ribera, ‘El Españoleto’. Another interesting religious monument is the Baroque Encarnación Monastery with statues from the Alonso Cano school inside. A wander around the city uncovers the typical Andalusian-style whitewashed houses. There are also several old palaces such as the Marqués de la Gomera or Cepeda mansions. The Plaza Mayor square is in the heart of the city and houses the Town Hall, Casino, La Concepción Convent and the Water Tower. The latter is home to the Archaeological Museum. Las Canteras archaeological site is located on the outskirts, home to major remains from the Visigoth era.
