Alcalá de Guadaíra – San Roque Chapel

The San Roque Chapel is located at Pinares de Oromana, Cerro del Calvario, south of the Andalusian town of Alcalá de Guadaíra, province of Seville.

The religious temple keeps a carving of Our Lady of Bethlehem dating from the sixteenth century, and another from San roque of the seventeenth century. It is possible to appreciate a canvas of the sevillana school, of century XVIII.

The monument is part of an ancient penitential route which is still witnessed by some of the chapels located on the hillside.Alcalá de Guadaíra - San Roque Chapel

The temple has a single nave, although originally to have cruise.

In 1982, in a project approved by the Governing Board and under the direction of Don Luis Álvarez Selma, the task of building a sacristy in the Hermitage is undertaken, which will consist of adding a room on the Gospel side, on the basis of another presumably existing, with the same characteristics as the rest of the building, namely, a roof with country tiles, a window framed in a clean brick arch, rustic walls and flooring the same as that inside the Hermitage. The budget, like that of the previous restoration, would be covered by brothers in love with the project. In the summer of 2002 the roof of the hermitage was restored due to slight detachments in the covering material as well as in the wooden elements (beam and planking) that existed inside the coffered ceiling. In this same year, the Brotherhood requested the inclusion of the hermitage in the Andalusian Catalog of Assets of Cultural Interest, to which the Alcala Town Hall adhered to the Ministry of Culture of the Andalusian Government.
