Hermitage of San Salvador

← Return

This is a building of a nave that is rectangular in shape. The interior is divided into three sections by two pointed arches that rest on stone pillars that develop into buttresses towards the exterior of the façades.


According to mapping, the hermitage existed at its present location in 1745. The old stations of the cross were destroyed during the Civil War. In 1945 they were restored and worship in the hermitage began once again. The current stations of the cross are from 1993.

 

Until well into the 20th century, sailors kept an oil lamp on the front of the building lit, which served as a guide for vessels seeking anchorage. From there you can see the olive tree next to the main façade, the source of fuel oil.

This hermitage opens its doors on the 6th of August to celebrate the feast of San Salvador. Traditionally those who live on the street of the hermitage have been responsible for its maintenance, even keeping the keys to the chapel.

 

The interior is divided into three sections by two pointed arches that rest on stone pillars and support buttresses on the exterior of the façade that will transport you to the wonders of this era.
