La Llosa de Camatxo

Església de la Puríssima Concepció de la Llosa

Cristóbal Camacho Claramunt, married to Vicenta Giberto, had a new church built on top of the chapel that served as a crypt. It was inaugurated in 1749 and in 1771 he founded a chaplaincy with the obligation that the chaplain would reside in La Llosa, celebrate daily Mass and teach reading and writing to the residents. His nephew, Josef Camacho Álvaro, was the first chaplain to serve in this chaplaincy.

In 1962, the bell tower was constructed, replacing the old bell gable of the church. On June 15th, 1972, while José María García Lahiguera was the Archbishop of Valencia, the parish known as La Puríssima Concepció de La Llosa was established.

The church is a construction that has a simple character. The façade has a main double leaf metal door and an opening at the top. This door is emphasised by pilasters and a frieze that frames it like a moulding. Above the door, there is a small niche which was used to house an image that is no longer there. Further up, a central window completes the organisation of the façade, topped with a gable cornice. The roof, also with two slopes, appears highlighted with mouldings in the centre.

On the right side, a bell tower crowns the composition of the church, with a central clock and topped with a pyramidal dome decorated with blue tiles.

The walls of the main façade are made of regular stone blocks, forming a simple and austere appearance with minimal ornamentation. The roof is made of Arab tiles, and the finishing touches of the structure itself are made of wood on some windows, and metal on the grilles and the main door, which are brass with rivets.

The current church of La Puríssima Concepció was previously called "dels Sants Reis" (of the Holy Kings) and until 1922 it appeared in various documents under this dedication.
