las pocetas hermitage

Hermitage in Las Pocetas
Radio Sintonia:

The Hermitage of San Francisco Javier in Las Pocetas, blessed in 1775.

In the small town of Las Pocetas in the municipality of Antigua, among new constructions remains standing a building of 1775, it is the Hermitage of San Francisco Javier.

This hermitage was blessed on December 2, 1775. The plan is rectangular with sacristy attached to the south wall. The entrance doors to the enclosure are framed in semicircular arches made of stonework. In the upper right part of the façade is the belfry with a single hollow-bell and crowned with three pinnacles. Two abutments protrude from the north wall. The calvary, consisting of a simple wooden cross, is located in front of the main gate. Inside the building we find a small choir above the door which is accessed by a staircase of two sections, all made of wood. The altarpiece is made of polychrome wood with plant motifs and contains a niche with the image of the Saint.
