Hermitage of Saint Eulalia of Merida (16th C) - near Aledo (north of Totana, Murcia Province, Spain)
Considerable restoration work has been carried out, beginning in the late 19th C with the most recent
work having been done as recently as 1971. All photographs taken on 7th & 25th February 2007

The Baroque altarpiece within the Hermitage;
there is a Mudejar coffered ceiling which is very fine (too little light to take without 'flash')

The modern way to 'light a candle'!
(You put a coin or coins in the slot and a number of bulbs light, depending on how much you put in.)

The monastery and hotel complex with well laid out gardens, built around the Hermitage,
is of much more recent origin (roughly 1921 I think)

The monastery complex viewed from above, set in magnificent wooded scenery. The photograph is taken
some way up the nearby hill known as the 'Via Crucis' (Way of the Cross),
leading to the 'Sagrado Corazón de Jesús' (holy Heart of Jesus) monument

A couple of photographs of the 'Sagrado Corazón de Jesús' (holy Heart of Jesus) monument,
the culmination of the walk up the hill from the monastery taking the 'Via Crucis' (Way of the Cross)

The view over the valley, looking south toward Mazarron, from the viewing platform at the summit
