Gata de Gorgos

Ermita del Crist del Calvari de Gata

The Chapel of El Santíssim Crist del Calvari is located on the outskirts of Gata de Gorgos, on a hill known as El Tossalet. Its construction began in 1762, and it was consecrated on February 12th, 1770.

In 1886, the building was expanded to give it more grandeur, and in 1905, the bell tower was erected at the same time as the construction of the Calvary chapels that precede the chapel. During the Spanish Civil War, it was used as a hospital. The temple, religious objects and the Via Crucis [Stations of the Cross] suffered significant damage, although they were later restored. The last major renovation took place in 1974.

The exterior of the chapel features whitewashed walls where the prominent volumes of the side chapels, transept and sanctuary stand out. The roof is covered with clay tiles, and above it rises a small dome with glazed tiles on a blind drum.

It has a front porch with wide entrances under semi-circular arches with exposed stonework. The façade of this atrium is also the façade of the hermitage, reinforced by two large buttresses. Above the main entrance, there is a niche with a small roof representing the final station of the Via Crucis. The cornice's triangle is interrupted by the bell gable and its bell, named Santíssim Crist, which was cast around 1900.

Inside, the nave is covered with a barrel vault and transverse arches. It has small and interconnected lateral chapels separated by semi-circular arches, housing an image of Mare de Déu dels Dolors (Our Lady of Sorrows) and El Sant Sepulcre (the Holy Sepulchre). The sanctuary has a room on each side, followed by the sacristy and a storage room. In the niche, an image of El Crist del Calvari is enthroned in a small temple supported by angels.
