The church of Tormos, dedicated to the invocation of San Luís Beltrán, titular saint of the parish, was built during the second half of the 18th century, with a neoclassical style, refined in general lines but with the application of techniques and materials typical of the area where the temple is located.

Within the complex, different elements of great interest can be highlighted, for not having undergone excessive transformations in the successive periods after its construction. Among others we would highlight the main altarpiece, dedicated to Saint Luís Beltrán, and the side altarpiece dedicated to the Mare de Déu del Rosari. Of both it can be said that its materialization is carried out by the use of wood with the influence of the same style as the construction, the neoclassical. Likewise, both have different conditions that alter their original image.

The church is developed in five bays, describing a Latin cross inserted in an almost regular rectangle and

The main nave and transept are covered with a barrel vault, reinforced with arches that show the resistant structure, exterior-interior. The union of both arms, longitudinal nave and transept, transept, is covered with a lowered vault as a union of both cannons.

The lateral naves, being almost niches to receive the altarpieces, are covered with lowered vaults.

The interior presents a typical neoclassical decoration with columns, capitals in the compound style, pilasters, robust moldings, typical of the construction style.

Gold is occasionally used, in this case being a glitter emulsion or, in its case, fake gold with a high oxidation state. Likewise, the set is completed with panels painted with plant motifs, sgraffito on its perimeter and reinforcing arches, currently being camouflaged by a layer of paint, golden perimeter ribbons on all panels, continuous perimeter frieze with painted border imitating marble and jasper in dark tones.

The roof is resolved with a ceramic tile covering, Arabic type, on a ceramic board supported in almost total security on partitions that in turn rest on the barrel vault.

At the top of the exterior walls of the main nave, transept and buttresses there is a perimeter cornice with monochrome Greek-style decoration on a lime mortar cladding.

The pavement is made with cement tiles, dating from the late nineteenth century, forming borders and serial figures, both in the central nave and on the sides.
