Hermitage of Santa Ana


The Hermitage of Santa Ana in Canillas de Albaida is a simple building of the sixteenth century Mudejar style. It was built by the Arabs at the time of the reconquest serving as strong.

The shrine consists of a single nave covered by a barrel vault and dome on the head mate. The main chapel has a hemispherical dome on pendentives. The building is supported on its sides in thick buttresses and is surmounted by an octagonal pivot topped by a cone.

The exterior features an open atrium by three arches, one on each forehead, opening a simple niche.

The presbytery has a golden altar dominated by the image of Santa Ana, the work of the early eighteenth century.

Also notable are the images of Santa Rita, popular devotion, and a painful wooden polychrome eighteenth century.
