Benaocaz – San Blas Chapel

The San Blas Chapel is located in Avenida de Andalucía, in the Andalusian town of Benaocaz, Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park.

The San Blas Chapel was built in 1716 thanks to popular donations.

In it is the image of Copatrón San Blas.

It has a rectangular floor plan, a single nave covered with a barrel vault and an apse of a flat roof covered with a ribbed vault, where the main altar is located, composed of four niches pierced in the wall.

In the central one we find the image of San Blas, in the one on the left the one of the Candelaria and inthe one  of the right, the one of San Lazaro. The superior one is occupied by the crucified Christ.

Its walls are painted imitating architectural elements such as altarpieces and niches.

The San Blas Chapel was rebuilt in 1924. On the exterior the main facade stands out, formed by a semicircular arch between two Tuscan pilasters with a striad stem, on which the entablature rests and the three-vane and double-body belfry, which houses the bell and ending in a wavy baqueton culminated by a cross.

Attached to the chapel is the funeral home and the cemetery.
