Ermita de la Divina Aurora

The chapel known as Ermita de La Divina Aurora, also known as Ermita de La Sang, is located in the urban centre of the town, with its façade towards Carrer del Pare Reig, and cornering with Carrer de la Sang.

The site where this chapel stands was once part of what was a hospital (specifically the women's ward) and later also a prison. This establishment would have been operational between 1587 and 1591. The image of La Divina Aurora has been venerated in a side chapel since 1856.

Since its founding, it has undergone various restorations and modifications. The most significant recent one was carried out in 1979. It is currently in good condition.

The temple is a simple, whitewashed rectangular building, covered by a gabled roof. It is attached on the right side to a private residence, while on the left it forms a corner with another street. The façade is asymmetrical because the right part houses the interior chapel of La Divina Aurora, which extends into the middle of the nave. The entrance is rectangular with a sheet metal door and an oval opening with ashlars extending on both sides of the entrance. Above, there is a small oculus and, crowning the frontispiece, there is a belfry with a bell named Maria, on which one can read: "Ave Maria Grasia Plena Any 1872". Two wrought-iron lanterns and a colourful altarpiece depicting La Divina Aurora decorate the façade.

The nave is rectangular with a barrel vault divided by two arches and is presided over by an image of Ecce Homo, preserved behind the niche of a neoclassical altarpiece. To the right is the chapel or chamber of La Divina Aurora, where her image is enthroned above a glory of angels. This image, funded mostly by Murla residents in the United States, replaced another image that had been donated after the Spanish Civil War, which in turn replaced the original one destroyed in that war, and which dated back to the mid-19th century.

La Divina Aurora is the patron saint of Murla, and its main festivities are celebrated during the first week of August. On the night of August 5th, the most solemn event takes place, with a procession of the image carried through the streets of the town from its chapel to the parish church.
