The local diocese has announced plans to restore the bell tower and facade of the Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación church in collaboration with the local council. The diocese still needs the authorisation of the regional government to carry out the works, as the building is a 16th century protected structure. The church's priest, José Antonio Melgar, has explained that the works will be undertaken this spring, after an agreement has been made, and should be finished before the saint's day celebrations in September.
