Ermita de Santa Ana (Hermitage of Saint Anne)

Callejón de Santa Ana


If you plan to visit us or you are already here, then the Ermita de Santa Ana is a must see. It stands as a great icon and outstanding watchtower over the Bay of Cadiz, its coast, marshes and towns.

With an octagonal floor plan and a hemispherical dome, this Neoclassical-style church has double significance: architectural and religious and, also, landscape and social, since its surroundings served as a meeting place for families, both from Chiclana and those visiting.

A place of pilgrimage and worship over the centuries, it houses the image of Santa Ana and the Virgen Niña (Child Virgin), work of the sculptor Domingo Giscardi (18th century).

This image, made into a sculpture, looks out over one of those views that speak of the diversity, beauty and richness of this part of the province of Cadiz, a privileged balcony from which, in the blink of an eye, you will see the infinite attractions of this land of intense whites, blues and greens.


Date of construction: Second half of the 18th century.


Tuesday from 10 am to 2 pm and from 4 pm to 8 pm.
