Hermitage of Virgen de la Estrella

The hermitage, owned by the parish of Santiago del Arrabal, was built by the brotherhood of orchard workers in the XIV Century, the current building being the fine baroque work of Juan Bautista Monegro with the entrance by an unknown designer. It has a Greek cross base, with a central dome on pechinas although on the outside its elevation is from a square base.

It is notable because of its sombre style and almost total absence of gaps, except for the vertical line of four successive spans: the entrance, the vaulted niche framed by columns, a rectangular window and the belfry. The Nativity scene placed in the chapel at Christmas time is very well known.

Its paintings and altars with Solomonic columns from the XVIII Century are currently undergoing restoration. That is why its fiestas, held for nine days and culminating in the procession on the fourth Sunday in May, take place in the square in front of the church of Santiago de Arrabal, celebrating holy communion in the parish see.
