Ermita de San José Obrero

The Shrine to San José Obrero was built in 1994 in near the Roya spring. Plan a visit to St Joseph during the Estepa’s Pilgrimage on 1 May.

The Shrine to San José Obrero is a simple, humble and small single-nave building. The only objects inside are wooden crosses that represent the Stations of the Cross that belong to Manuel Lazzaretta, founder of the Confraternity, and a small niche where the image of St Joseph the Worker is placed when taken here in pilgrimage. The exterior is also plain and humble. Highlights include the bell in the bell gable that was brought here from the Shrine to Santa Ana, the canonical seat of the Confraternity of Our Lady of Anguish.
