Hermitages and churches

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


Ermita de Santa Llúcia

The Chapel of Santa Llúcia is located approximately one and a half kilometres from Dénia. It can be reached from the city via the Santa Llúcia pathway.
The exact date of its construction is uncertain, but it can be traced back to the 14th century or the early 15th century, according to an archaeological study conducted in 2003-2004. What is known is that the brotherhood already existed during the 17th century.

The original temple has undergone several renovations, including those in the 18th century or early 19th century, and the most recent one in 1957 when the building was rehabilitated and the surroundings were adapted.

On the left side of the chapel, a solid buttress can be seen, and the former hermit's dwelling is attached on the right side, the latter serving today as the confraternity’s house. The roof extends from the chapel to the sacristy, forming a double-pitched structure. The entrance door is framed by a semi-circular arched lintel, and its surfaces are white, except at the edges. The openings, corners, and bell gable are left with exposed stone.

Inside, the nave is divided into two sections by a diaphragm arch, made of bare stone blocks, that starts from pilasters.

The only window is situated on the left side of the first section. The double-pitched roof has exposed wooden beams. The sanctuary is elevated on a platform, and at the head there is a single niche containing the image of Santa Llúcia.

Among the most valuable religious objects present, there is a chalice from the second half of the 18th century with a representation of the saint on its base.
