Chapel of the Blessed Souls
(XIX century). Source Escalona arrive from across the Paseo de la Ermita, allowing us a nice walk among olive trees, we will probably look very short. The spread of the olive as an economic resource of the town is linked to the eighteenth century and the construction of the New Acequia, which unifies small irrigation ditches taking water from the river on the left bank, and from there departed for Strings deal. This allowed increasing the cultivated and watered over the people in the hamlets and The Los Llanillos Balsillas surface. In this agricultural expansion, which also increased the wheat fields, the major role will landowners and mills, the Marquis de Iniza and Pablo Martín Ocaña Moya (1708-1772). Actually the chapel is situated in the old road that came from the coast and reminds us that secular idea of \u200b\u200bsanctifying the input space to the people and lifelong worship and remembrance of the dead in the Old Regime, creating a very popular religiosity marked in the ancient kingdom of Granada. The tradition dates back to the Council of Trent and recognition of pulgatorio as an intermediate stage to heaven, but after the intercession of saints and family praying for the salvation of souls. The Virgen del Carmen is the intercessor and devotees make offerings to deceased relatives can rest in peace and out of Purgatory. The offerings may be in cash, candles or flowers, creating a makeshift altar around the image of the Virgin. This chapel has the uniqueness of being one of the best preserved in the Alpujarra, as others have suffered an unfortunate renovation that has removed the traditional label.

But the economic and demographic growth increase eighteenth century forced the original temple aisles totally being remodeled with a new header with cruise, transept, chancel and vestry, and also the interior is transformed in accordance with the Baroque style, linked to the spirit of the Counter-Reformation Council of Trent. Now it has a Latin cross with three naves, the central nave covered with a barrel vault encamonada (made of reed and air chamber to vent the timber, provided under the old Moorish armor), and the groin vault side, while the cruise shows a semicircular dome. Also cut some simple plates are arranged on the pilasters, reminding us all the same remodeling suffered by the parish church of San Andrés de Fondón within the Baroque style, which is due to be both projects of architect Juan José Fernández Bravo. At the same time it is added to the body octagonal tower chimes kick in order to increase the sound of bells around. The add-an altarpiece on the high altar, actually a trompe l'oeil painted, probably for reasons of economy, except the central wooden tabernacle, disappearing all together with the imagery in the tragedy of the Civil War.

Ermita de San Sebastian and San Ildefonso
Simplicity compared to last if we continue the walk a little further surprises us this great baroque chapel, built in 1709 (the date appears on the side under the cornice). In the same building we found an additional space that could serve as a hermit's house and sacristy, while, at the door, found on the floor the circular underground cistern through. (XVIII century). But the main attraction is in the interior, with a floor of a large nave with barrel vault, with a foot platform, differentiated chapel and a simple dressing room, at the bedside, characteristic element of religious architecture in Granada first half of the eighteenth century power Baroque high altar of sensationalism. Surprise decoration with frescoes of Saints Apóstotes. The chapel was promoted by the Marquis of Iniza and originally dedicated to the Virgin of the Sea, as devotional speech protection linked to fear offshore and pirate attacks. Do not forget that the Marquises are commanders concejil or peasant soldiers who defend the coast militia. This enabled them to be appointed perpetual Cavalry Colonels coast and perpetual rulers of Fondón, Berja, Paterna or Alcolea, to be finally ennobled by the Crown in exchange for services rendered in 1730. But the sad neglect of the chapel, weather water permeating the vaults, and the barbarism of some "visitors" have allowed the current decline and almost total loss of the murals.
