Pedramala Hermitage

In honour to Saint Vincent Ferrer

Getting there:

Take the same road as you would to go to the hermitage of Saint James, but instead of turning off for Benimarco, continue on towards Calpe until you see a road of the right with a sign for Pedramala, where you turn off.

Once you are on the Pedramala road, you will see a sign for "Pedramala hermitage", approximately 400 m on the left. It dates from the 19th century. Like all the other hermitages, it has a square in front, where the main events of the festivals are held.

Description:

The height here above sea level, 245 m, gives a privileged view point from the impressive Rock of Ifach to Moraig, along the beaches of Calpe, the coast of Benissa, Moraira and the port of Moraira. In the distance we have Puig Llorença mountain, and as the backdrop, the splendid blue of the Mediterranean, shinning its light on us and inviting us down to marvellous coves of Benissa. If we visit the hermitage in the morning, we can see the visible face of the rock of Ifach lit up by the sun, further emphasising its natural beauty. In the same road as the hermitage, but a little bit futher away on the right side , we can find the ancient school of Pedramala.

Festivals:

Festivals are held in mid-July, and the main events consist of a communal dinners, "Entrà de la Murta", music, mass, and fireworks.
