Hermitage of Santa Anna

Hermitage of Santa Anna is located in la Llosa de Ranes. Supported by the Borgia family, it was built in the mid-16th century in a flamboyant Gothic style, and it preserves the heraldries of Xàtiva, the Kingdom of Valencia and the Borgia family. Its strategic location, crowning the mountain Santa Anna, provides incredible views.

Gothic in style, although it has no openings, it has a rectangular ground plan with walls and buttresses. It has an exterior roof made up of ribbed vaults. The access is through a semicircular doorway that was preceded by a portico that has now disappeared.

Inside, the chapel has a single nave with three bays and a presbytery. Two keystones of the ribbed arches remain, one representing the Borgia-Gil d’Oms coat of arms and the other the Verge amb el Nen (the Virgin with the Child). In the 1980s, the building was restored, returning its unique architectural character.
