St. Isidore Hermitage (Adra)

In the Barranco de Almerin, this hermitage is the central location for the traditional festival in honour of Saint Isidore the Farmer. The hermitage dates from the 18th century.

It consists of a gable roof with Arabic tiles, topped by a small belfry constructed with simple and austere lines, powerful buttresses, a wooden entrance door, and narrow eaves (instead of the broad stone slabs that are more frequently seen in upper Alpujarra). The building is all whitewashed and surrounded by slate slabs, instead of the old and more traditional stone paving.
