Tella – Rutas de las Ermitas


Leave by car from the hotel in the direction of France on the A-138 to the town of Hospital de Tella, where we take a detour to the left that will lead us to Tella, where the excursion begins. Before reaching the village, on the left we have the dolmen.

Arriving to the village, we will see in the corner of its church a sign towards the “Circuit of the Hermitages”.

The excursion is made up of three hermitages of different chronological moments. The first, that of the saints John and Paul. It is pre-Romanesque of small size, barrel vault, apse for the area of the altar and very simple. It has a lower crypt, which is accessed by a staircase.

The next one is the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Fajanillas. It has a small entrance portico and a central layout. It has a small semicircular apse and in the centre of the construction there is an altar.

The last one is the most advanced in time, the hermitage of the Virgen de la Peña. It dates from the 16th century. It is the largest of them all and follows the typical features we have seen.
