The Virgin of the Ermitana

The Virgin of the Ermitana

The name of the Ermitana is symbolical of Peñiscola´s past popular culture. La ermitana, spanish for chapel, presides over the town, not only physically, by way of the chapel by the castle, but also in the feeling it conjures. Throughout the generations, the passion towards the Virgin Mary, venerated through the name of Mare de Déu d'Ermitana (Mother of God) , is one of the many striking characteristics of this fortress in and on the sea.
