Saint John the Baptist Church (Beneji - Berja - Almeria)

Saint John the Baptist Church (Beneji - Berja)

In the Saint John the Baptist Church, in Beneji, the image of the Holy Christ of Cabrilla has been venerated since the 17th century, and the settlers coming from Jaen who settled in this area after the War of the Alpujarras had immense devotion for this image.

The current image from the year 1949 was made by “Talleres El Arte Cristiano de Olot”. The brotherhood makes a vow of silence before going out to the streets of Berja in procession every Holy Thursday, being the only procession that takes the style from Malaga´s processions.
