The Parish Church of la Asunción is a Catholic church located in the Painter Segrelles Square number 14, in the municipality of Albaida (Valencia), Spain. It is good of local relevance with ID number 46.24.006-008.


The parish was stablished in the 13th century. The building was built between 1592 and 1621 in Valencian Gothic style, replacing the old church of our Lady of the Assumption, built in the 13th century. It was restored in 1830.


The church consists of a single nave, with chapels between the buttress. The facade stands out for its simplicity and its two Renaissance doors. The slender bell tower square was used as a watch tower until an auction was added in the middle of 19th century.

The sacristy retains several luxurious ornaments from the 15th to the 20th centuries, highlighting the true cross, a reliquary of Gothic silverware, possibly from the 15th century.
