La Vall de Laguar

Església de santa Anna. Campell

After the parish ordination in 1535, a modest temple was initially built on the site of the original Muslim mosque. Only with the arrival of new settlers during the 17th century was a church constructed. It has a rectangular layout, a single nave with a barrel vault, and lateral chapels. The transept and the main altar were built in 1700. The historical documents of the parish archive, as well as part of the more modern documentation, were deposited in the so-called Fons Històric de L'Arxiu Diocesà de València (the Historical Fund of the Diocesan Archive of Valencia) in two different moments: a first deposit in 2003 and another one in 2010. The current rector also serves the parishes of Benimaurell and Fleix.

The temple has a façade with a curvilinear moulding finish. The bell tower is located on one side of the main façade of the church. It has a square plan and three bodies. The first body has a bricked-up window, possibly intended for the bells, but used to place the clock face. A simple moulding separates the first and second bodies. The second body features four windows with semi-circular arches, combining smooth walls with exposed tilework. The third body has two levels with an arch on each side. The first level has diagonal arches and the second level has flying buttresses and pinnacles. It is covered by a four-sided roof with a cross and finial.

The temple is considered a Local Heritage Asset. In 1994, the two bells were installed with iron trusses from the Roses foundry. The larger bell had an hour hammer for the hourly strikes and a chain on the clapper to ring it from the base of the tower. The bell tower has a simple finish.

Both the bell tower as well as the bells have been preserved well. The latter are installed in the windows of the bell chamber with a traditional Valencian wooden truss profile. They have an impulse, single-phase motor. The clappers are tied and reinforced with safety cables.
