Ermita de Santa Águeda


The Ermita de Santa Águeda is located at a height of 1,175 metres, in the mountain range of the same name, previously called Avinsilona. This ermita, or small church, is considered to be one of the best examples of Romanesque style from the Reconquest of Spain. Its entrance stands out as it is made out of cut stones and situated between a buttress and the living quarters of the ermita. Inside, there is an altar with a niche available for holding the saint’s image. There is also a choir and a small pulpit. The pulpit, like the paved floor, is partially destroyed. Recent years have seen the renewal of the old pilgrimage which is now held on the Monday of the August celebrations, even though it used to be held on the Monday following the Pentecost.
