Hermitage of la Alegría

Behind the Collegiate Church of San Hipólito stands this charming hermitage called la Alegría (Joy), in honour of the Virgin, patron of the hermitage. It was first built in the 18th century by Hurtado Izquierdo, although there have been many alterations since. The main entrance to the church, built by Juan Navajas, has broken pediments, one triangular and the other curved. Next to the main entrance to the church there is another door which leads to the courtyard, with its porticos. The building is rectangular with oval vaulting, and the elegant plasterwork is complemented by the beautiful altar, built in the 18th Century by Manuel Sánchez Sandoval.
