Calvario and San Antonio Chapels

Calvario or Rollo Hermitage

Nowadays it is popularly known as the hermitage of the roll, due to the celebration that takes place there at the Easter of Pentecost, when the Town Hall offers to the assistants a roll of bread with aniseed and rabbit with snails is eaten.

This hermitage sits on a promontory near the town center. The curiosity of the hermitage is that, according to its use within the celebrations of the Holy Week of the town, in which the traditional ascent to Calvary takes place, it was designed incorporating a crypt under the main altar where several scenes of the Passion of Christ, large soldiers, angels’ heads, etc. are represented. These paintings have been recently restored.

Hermitage of San Antonio

Very close, before ascending to visit the Rollo hermitage, another hermitage appears on the road. Under the patronage of San Antonio, this small hermitage seems to date from 1717.

The chapel has been recently renovated. The eave, which was in very poor condition, has been replaced.
