Ermita de Santa Ana. Alfambra


The Hermitage of Santa Ana is a religious building located 7 kilometres from the municipality of Alfambra (Teruel).

It is a group of buildings that have undergone many alterations over the years, with the vocation of a sanctuary, receiving an annual pilgrimage from the people of Alfambra on the Saturday closest to the 13th of June. These buildings are: a church with a single nave, several sections, transept, chapel at the chancel and choir loft at the foot; there is also a caretaker’s house, converted into a multi-purpose hall; and about 200 m to the north, the so-called Pilón de Santa Ana, which marks the reference point of an old path through the area.

In 2007, a set of Gothic mural paintings from the mid-15th century was discovered, covering some 30 square metres, plus a further 15 square metres of Baroque mural painting from the 17th century.

These paintings are divided into three large Gothic scenes, including a representation of the Last Supper, a portrait of the Catholic Monarchs on the figure of Saint George, patron saint of Aragon on horseback, and the image of the possible donor of the work.


Next to the hermitage you will find the analemmatic sundial.
