hermitage tindaya

Hermitage in Tindaya
Radio Sintonia:

Hermitage of Our Lady of Charity, a sanctuary in Tindaya.

Fuerteventura has several historic buildings scattered throughout the island, among them is the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de la Caridad, which is located in Tindaya (La Oliva). This structure was declared an Asset of Cultural Interest by Decree 255/1993, of September 24, 1993.

Sanctuary structure
Rectangular building with small sacristy attached to the right side. The single nave is undifferentiated and only one step highlights the area of the main altar. The pavement is made of stone slabs of the country and the roof is a simple torque and row truss with four braces of simple beams. The façade adapts to the gabled roof of the building and is centered by the main door with a semicircular arcade. The entire exterior is whitewashed, except for the belfry of a hole that rises on the left side of the façade and is of the so-called millstone. On the wall on the side of the Epistle opens a second door, with a semicircular arch. The small Sacristy, on the other hand, has access from the right side of the main altar and communicates directly with the square through a door; Its roof is hipped and independent of the rest of the hermitage.

Pieces of important cultural value
The movable property that comprises and constitutes an essential part of its history are: Main altarpiece (baroque, eighteenth century), canvases of the Dream of San José (very close to the style of Cristóbal Hernández de Quintana) and Immaculate Conception (Canarian school), image of Our Lady of Charity (candlestick), Holy Water Font, pulpit, etc.
