Olvera - Los Remedios
The Hermitage Church of “Nuestra Señora de los Remedios” (Our lady of the Remedies) is situated two kilometres from Olvera on the road to Torre Alháquime and Setenil. This is a unique building and well worth the visit. On the first floor you will find a whole room of paraphernalia, including, photographs, sports trophies, walking sticks, L plates, wedding dresses and babies outfits all dedicated to the Virgen de los Remedios as a thanks for her " miracles". There is a central patio filled with plants and a small chapel with an ornate alter and beautiful stained glass windows and a gift shop for souvenirs. Outside there is a statue to Fray Francisco de los Remedios Cerezco Cabrera, known affectionately as “Father Cerezco”, thanking the local people for restoring and maintaining the sanctuary for five centuries. There is also a beautiful cherry tree at the entrance of the church.
