Santuario de la Rogativa

16th-18th Century

Pilgrimages to the hermitage date back to the 16th century

The story of a Marian apparition was the reason for building this hermitage to evangelize the Moorish inhabitants of the region in medieval times. Since then the hermitage has been the site of numerous pilgrimages, for example the one that is held the last Sunday of May, when hundreds of people flock here. Every year, the image of the Virgen de la Rogativa is taken to Moratalla in April and September making stops in the parishes of El Sabinar, Calar de la Santa, Campo de San Juan and Béjar.

The hermitage stands 1,285 metres above sea level

The Hermitage-Sanctuary of La Rogativa, at the foot of Sierra de Revolcadores, is a simple building made of brick, wood and stone, which blends perfectly into the landscape, and has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest.

The shrine paintings stand out amid the simplicity of the hermitage

Inside the building, we must highlight the decoration of the altar chapel with 18th-century fresco wall paintings depicting biblical scenes.
