This small neo-Gothic style temple was built in the 18th century in honor of the Virgin of Anguish; patroness saint of Vera.
Inside, the main altarpiece stands out. It is from the beginning of the 20th century and is the only one in the province of Almeria made of plaster. It is celebrated every year on June 10, the day of the patroness saint of the city.
Over time, the temple has had restorations, improvements and extensions. At the beginning of the Spanish Civil War, neighbours hid the image to prevent it from being looted and burned. The carving made in wood at the end of the 17th century is a treasure of Andalusian religious imagery. In his story, he received five bullets, and one blow caused the phalanges of his hands to break. After the Spanish Civil War, it was restored in Valencia.
