Hermitage of San Juan de la Cruz

The small and ancient oratory was enlarged to erect a chapel in honor of San Juan de la Cruz and to be the chapel of the first cemetery of this city which was built next to it. Some friars from La Peñuela claimed to have seen San Juan de la Cruz officiating mass in this chapel, coinciding with the moment of his death in Úbeda on 14th  December 1591; a miracle recorded in the painting by Sánchez Sola that presides over the chapel's altar.
