The Hermitages spot

El Paratge de les Ermites  (the Hermitage spot) gets its name from the mid-19th century l’ermita del Crist (hermitage of Christ) and l’ermita de Sant Sebastià (hermitage of Sant Sebastià), dating from 1746. It is a place of extraordinary natural beauty, located next to the Saraella and the Penyó (Rock), and from where interesting hiking routes start.t

The current building where l’ermita de Sant Sebastià (hermitage of Sant Sebastià) is located was built in 1746, replacing another from the 16th century. The new temple conserved images, objects of worship and an altarpiece from the old hermitage. 

On its façade, the bell christened Sant Antoni de Pàdua stands out, while on the pediment there is a ceramic altarpiece dating from 1989 that represents the martyrdom of Sant Sebastià.

For its part, l’ermita del Crist (the hermitage of Christ), built in 1850, replaces a chapel that already existed in the 17th century. It is a simple rectangular building preceded by a small square with a fountain in its centre. It is worth mentioning the carving made in 1946 by the Mallorcan artist Tomás Vila Major, an image of the Crist de la Muntanya Calvari (Christ of Mount Calvary), which is carried in procession to the village during its patron saint’s festivities.

Next to the Ermites spot there is a small green area from where interesting hiking trails start and where you can find La Saraella swimming pool. An outdoor swimming pool with natural salt water fed by the Saraella river. In the area there is a recreational area with relaxation zones and regulated parking on Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays and the eve of public holidays.
