GOODS OF INTEREST
Gothic carving of St. Mary, early fifteenth century
This is the gem of Nules cultural heritage. Probably it presided over the main entrance of the Main Church of Nules until mid-seventeenth century, when it was moved to a small chapel attached to the ancient walls. After the walls were demolished in the mid-nineteenth century, a chapel was built where the carving stayed until the 70's, when the chapel was demolished and the piece was taken to the Cathedral Museum of Sogorb. After many efforts, it was possible to bring it back to Nules and currently it is located in the new altar of the arciprestal church of Saint Bartolome.
Processional Veracreu, eighteen century
Reliquary containing some of the wood of Jesus Christ’s cross. It belongs to the mid-eighteenth century, made of silver and gold in the goldsmiths workshops of Nules.
Crist jacent de l’Hospital
For its characteristics, it is assumed to be the old jointed Christ used in the main church for the representation of the Mystery of Deposition. When these representations were band its name was adapted as Crist jacent (Christ in abeyance).
Custòdia, begining of the seventeen century
The parish of St. Bartolome keeps this gem of religious jewellery: a silver processional custody adorned with precious stones, cast, chased and embossed. It is thought to be made during the sixteenth century. It belongs to the Renaissance style, with a circular base with concave moldings and ornaments of angels. It follows the Valencian style of sun and flamígers alternated rays and straight lines ending with stars.
Sant Pere's Bell, from 1640
The bell of St. Peter, from1640, is in the process of being declared Good of Cultural Interest. It is located in the bell tower of the former Carmelite Convent, now the temple of Sagrada Familia. Originally, it was located in the tower wall of the original parish church of Saint Bartolome, destroyed during the Spanish Civil War.
Chalice, beginings of the sixteen century
Overgilded silver chalice. It has no brand. It is attributed to Valencian artists. The stem is gallon, nearly circular, worked with chisel and embossing. Instruments of the Passion and the effigy of San Bartolomé are represented in it. The cane is turned on a lathe and the hub is constituted of edged hemispheres and in the front it is flattened with the inscription: Ave Verum Corpus natum. Under the top glass there are decorative ornamental motifs: seraphim, acanthus leaves, bows and stylized flowers.
Silver crown of the Virgen ‘La Soledat’ from the first half of the eighteen century
The crown of the Virgin ‘La Soledat’ is one of the jewels of our goldsmith. It is made of chiseled and embossed silver, and is dated about 1763. It is probably the work of the Valencian silver worker called Entreaigües.
Image of the Nazarene from the confraternity with the same name, 1945
It is the main imagery of the Brotherhood called ‘Natzarens de la Purissima Sang’ work of the sculptor Enrique Giner, from Nules. It is a well dressed image, with an embroidered costume and hairpiece. His face, that shows pain as well as serenity, conveys a great emotional charge. It is currently located in one of the side chapels of the Convent called ‘Sagrada Familia’.
Image of Sant Jaume, from1482 approx.
He chaired the altar of the Major church. Probably, it came from the altarpiece that Serafí Centelles, lord of Nules, commissioned to Don Rodrigo de Osona in 1482. The sculptural parts of the altarpieces from these painters were made by the Forment family, whom we can attribute this sculpture. It is currently in the Museum of History of Nules.
The Archives related to the church, preserve the serial ‘’Quinqui Libri’’ practically complete, it also preserves much of the rational books, as well as most of the legal protocols saved in 1937.
The Historical Archives of Nules keeps an important documental record of the life of the town since the mid-sixteenth century until the beginning of the twentieth century, in which the most noteworthy sections are Council and Water Manuals, and the reconstruction and demolition files of the walls.
