La Soledad Chapel

Formerly the chapel of Santa Maria de la Asuncion and a hospital for pilgrims, it is believed to have been built in the early 16th century. It was located within the old wall that surrounded Gerena. The chapel is a Mudejar-style building with a single nave with a trough roof, a chancel with a hemispherical dome and a choir at the end. It is dedicated to the Hermandad de la Soledad.

On Holy Saturday, the Cristo del Santísimo Entierro (Reclining Christ), an anonymous work from the 16th century, and the Virgen de la Soledad, from the second half of the 17th century, are carried in procession. Every three years this brotherhood takes Nuestro Señor de la Paz out in Procession on Easter Sunday.
