Ermita de Nuestra Señora de la Caridad

Ermita de Nuestra Señora de la Caridad

The Sanctuary of the Our Lady of Charity was built in the 16th century and rebuilt in the 18th century for the election of the Virgen de la Caridad as Patron Saint of Villarrobledo.

After the reconstruction, the hermitage was rebuilt in a “popular neoclassical” style with some interesting elements from the original Mudejar-style chapel, such as its coffered ceiling.

Among its outstanding elements, we can find the Image of the Patron Saint and the pedestal on which it stands, made of solid silver brought expressly from the Potosí hill. It is a bas-relief work in American Baroque style of incalculable artistic and historical value, representing the famous Potosí hill given to the Virgin by Friar Diego Morcillo, a native of Villarrobledo and named by Felipe V Viceroy of Peru.

Also noteworthy are some small frescoes on the right side of the chapel of the Virgin that could belong to the original hermitage.
