Hermitages and churches

The stones here speak, because they are a part
of our past and a part of our present.


Ermita de Santa Bàrbara de Pinos

The chapel dedicated to Santa Bàrbara is also known as the Chapel of Pinós because it is found in this rural area. It is the farthest from the town, about eight kilometres from Benissa, taking the road that leads to Bèrnia.

This chapel, recently restored, was built around the 19th century. Pascual Madoz already names it in his  Diccionari Geogràfic of 1846.

On the right side, the temple is attached to a two-storey house and, on the left side, to the hermit’s house. The sacristy is attached to the apse, which, like the abbey house, has an independent roof, while the chapel’s roof is gabled and made of tiles.

The façade, in front of which there is a square where a stone cross rises, is divided in two by a horizontal impost that overlooks the wide mixtilineal pediment, the bell gable and the corners adorned with pinnacles. In the lower part, the entrance door opens with a segmental arch and a round oculus above.

Inside, one sees a cabin-like roof with exposed beams and two semicircular arches that divide the nave into three sections. On the front wall, in the only niche there is, one can see the image of Saint Barbara accompanied by other icons, all in neoclassical style.

It used to give weekly mass service to the entire neighbourhood of Pinós and also the neighbouring areas of Llíber, Marnes and El Cau, which had a stable population until the 1960s.
