Santa Lucia Ermita, Alcossebre, Costa del Azahar, Spain

The Hermitage of Santa Lucia and Saint Benedict stands 1000 metres above sea level and can be seen from all over Alcossebre, particularly in the evening when its massive bronze doors catch the sun.

The Hermitage dates to the 17th Century, although it is thought that some of the oldest parts may date to a watchtower of the 15th Century.

The little church is quite plain, but the journey up is worth it for the breathtaking views over the Costa del Azahar spread out below.
