The Parish Church of San Salvador stands at the center of the village; construction began in the late 16th-century by Hernando Abadía, and its substantial expansion dates to the 18th century.

In terms of civil architecture, Loporzano has excellent examples of traditional houses at the foot of the Sierra de Guara, many featuring coats of arms of the village’s major families.

“El Amorcillo” fountain, the 19th-century work of Parisian artist Durenne, is found in the village, creating a curious contrast of styles.
