San Miguel Arcángel Chapel – Cazorla

The San Miguel Arcangel Chapel, popularly known as the Ángel de Cazorla Chapel is one of the most emblematic monuments of the city as it is on the road that joined the village to the foothills of the sierra, following the banks of the Cazorla River and few minutes from the Yedra Castle.

The San Miguel Arcangel Chapel has been abandoned during these last years and has served other functions very different from those of the cult. It has been recovered from oblivion by a group of neighbors in a generous and disinterested way, presenting its current appearance.

Architecturally, it presents a rectangular floor plan in three sections, covered with vaults separated by half-point fajones arches. Half-barrel vault in the second body and elliptical in the third, while in the front (entry) shows an impressive “baida” vault of a magnificent stonework (although currently masked by a cement plastering).
