Hermitages and churches

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


Església de Sant Josep

The Church of Benigembla was constructed in three different periods: the bell tower in 1833, the church itself in 1895, and the interior in 1913. Later, in 1994, the bell tower was restored and decorated. The artistic style of the building is neoclassical, except for the Baroque bell tower, which has a square plan and consists of three bodies with a double-pointed pinnacle. Additionally, a sundial can be observed on the main façade. The central and only nave has a cruciform floor plan and is covered with a barrel vault supported by transverse arches, while the lateral chapels and the transept are covered with a domed vault. A choir loft is located on the side of the presbytery. Inside, there are eight altars in addition to the main altar, as well as sixteen saints throughout the church. During the Spanish Civil War, many images were burnt, but thanks to donations from the local residents, it is possible to enjoy figures such as Sant Josep or La Mare de Déu Miraculosa next to the altar. Sant Josep, the current patron saint of the town, gives his name to the church and directly reflects that post-war era, seeing that it was the first piece created after the conflict.
