The Santa Cruz Hermitage

The Santa Cruz Hermitage stands on the slopes of Mount Benacantil, in the picturesque neighbourhood of Santa Cruz.


It dates from the late 18th century and was built over the Ampolla Tower, one of the few remaining stretches of the old city walls. It is from here that the Holy Week processions depart.
