Hermitages and churches

The stones here speak, because they are a part
of our past and a part of our present.


Ermita de Sant Salvador

The Chapel of Sant Salvador is located at the top of the park called Parc de L’Ermita in Calp, with access from Avinguda de Masnou and the adjoining square known as Plaça del Salvador by a stepped path along which the Stations of the Cross are arranged.

First, it was located in the mountain range called Serra d'Oltà, but in 1607, after falling into the hands of the rebellious Moors of the area, it was moved to its current location. At the end of the 18th century, it became a ruin and in 1748 a new floor was built over the remains. During the Civil War, it was destroyed again and was rebuilt at the neighbours’ initiative, beginning in 1945. In 1996, the development of the area began with the creation of Parc de L’Ermita which included the restoration of the chapel and the adaptation of its surroundings.

The chapel is a simple rectangular building with plain whitewashed walls and reinforced by buttresses, covered with a tiled gable roof.

The façade ends its triangular pediment with a belfry where there is a modern iron bell. A step leads to the wooden lintel door, to the left of which a small window opens.

The inside of the chapel is made up of a shack-like roof with exposed beams. Two diminished arches of bare stone that rest on pilasters divide the nave into three sections. The floor is made of clay tiles. The high altar, lit by side windows, is presided over by an image of Christ the Saviour flanked by angels, with an altarpiece of reddish tiles in the background, in which there is a painting of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
