Hermitages and churches

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


Ermita dels Sants de la Pedra dels Lleus

The chapel of Els Sants de La Pedra de Benissa or Chapel of Els Lleus is at about six kilometres from Benissa, although getting there requires travelling almost twice that distance due to the layout of the route.

Built by the inhabitants of the area and sanctified on the 18th of April 1701, the chapel is part of a small hamlet that includes other buildings, such as the old schools, which opened in 1935. Adjacent to its right is the hermit’s home, a two-storey house with an independent roof on a single slope, while the chapel’s roof is gabled. Next to the apse, the body of the sacristy is attached to it and, on the left side, it shows two buttresses between which are several oculi.

On the façade, there is a lintel door with a window and a ceramic altarpiece above representing the saints. At the top of the front is a straight cornice on which there is a wide bell-gable sanctified in 1712 and a cross.

The interior of the nave, rectangular, is divided into three sections by two semicircular arches that start from pilasters and support the roof with exposed wooden beams. On the side of the Gospel (the left side) in the central section, there is a cylindrical pulpit.

A dark-painted skirting board runs along the walls. The presbytery rises on the altar step, and the front is adorned with a neoclassical altarpiece with a figure of Christ and a central niche for the images of Saints Abdó and Senent. On the sides, on plinths, there are other carvings of the Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph, both with the Child.
