Ermita de la Soledad (Hermitage of Solitude)

Situated near to Bailén’s graveyard, we can find this chapel. Its age can be divided into two periods of time which coincide with the styles that segment the temple.

The Gothic aspect is captured in its rectangular nave, separated in turn into four spaces via three pointed arches, all dating back to the 14th century.

Four centuries later, we find ourselves in the Baroque style chapel-tower, where a pointed window serves as a link to the nave, from where you can also admire this element.

The alter offers access to the vestry on its left-hand side and, to its right, the chapel. Both are made of stone and lintelled, with plant scenes on the vault.

Inside, we can admire an image of ‘Cristo del Buen Morir’ (Christ of the Good Death) and another full sculpture of the ‘Virgen de los Dolores’ (Our Lady of Sorrows) which was done in the 1940s and survived a fire in the temple.

Outside, the whitewashed walls combine with the stone buttresses that support them, two of them guarding the entrance to the hermitage.
