Hermitage of San Ildefonso

On the outskirts of the city, the hermitage, which is built in 1734, was named after The Magdalene venerated since the medieval period in the parish of San Bartolomé el Viejo.

Its interior has a single central nave which is divided into five sections by simple pilasters attached to the walls. In addition, it has a lintelled roof and a flat apse. The most remarkable architectural elements are the open niches in the walls.

The facing brick exterior comprised a gable roof. Its doorways are quite simple and lintelled: one of them is situated at the foot of the hermitage, and the other in the gospel nave. There is also a small belfry at the gable end of the church.

This hermitage was built in the 16th century, as a result of the reaffirmation of peoples’ piety, and was enlarged in the 18th century.

The main nave has a collar-beam coffered ceiling of Mudejar style which contrasts with the poor materials used in its chancel. Both parts previously mentioned are joined together through a main arch, and its square ground plant is covered by a simple cupola which rests on scallops. At the same time,  a camarín (side chapel) was built adjacent to the chancel and has a staircase which may be accessed through the gospel arm that in turn gives access to the Virgin’s room. This room has a rectangular layout covered by a lowered barrel vault which is opened thanks to an arch to the presbytery. Today, the clear window is covered up and its interior is decorated with religious Baroque style wall paintings which depict Marian allegories, since this room is intended to host the image of the Virgin.
