Monuments in Córdoba

Calvario Chapel

The Calvario Chapel is located in the serrezuela, in the Cordovan town of Doña Mencía. In this hermitage the images of the Crucified Christ and María del Mayor Dolor are venerated.

The Hermitage of Calvario was the last to be erected and the only one that is still open today, gaining great relevance in the Holy Week celebrations of Doña Mencía.

There is a viewpoint next to the hermitage from where spectacular views can be seen, both of the town and its castle and of the surroundings.

The Roman era sites are the most numerous and probably this settlement was due to the passage of the Camino de Metedores through these lands, a route through which agricultural products were marketed between the Guadajoz and Genil valleys.
