The church dates back to the XVIII century: in 1740 the works began, after having demolished the old temple, in a ruinous state. It is a building of a single nave with a barrel vault without transept and with chapels on the sides that communicate with each other. The presbytery has a straight chancel and is elevated on steps. Next to it, we find the sacristy, from the beginning of the XX century, with a main façade and a lintel door between pilasters. It is worth mentioning the old organ, for which Sollana is known thanks to the saying "Tens més tecles que l'orgue de Sollana" (You have more keys than the organ of Sollana).

Parish Church of Santa María Magdalena, built between 1735 and 1740, and later restored and reformed in 1843 and 1900. Its construction was carried out on the basis of the previous medieval church dating from the thirteenth century, which in turn was erected on the basis of the mosque of the farmhouse of Suylana. It preserves the head of a recumbent Christ, the work of the Baroque sculptor from Valladolid, Gregorio Fernández. As well as the patron saint St. Mary Magdalene (July 22), the recumbent Christ, called Christ of Mercy, is venerated in the town on August 10.
