Santiponce Itálica


An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Chapel of El Navazo


The Chapel of El Navazo is set in a natural area near the Sierra del Tablón, between Algámitas and Pruna. The hill of El Navazo, where the chapel stands, has an altitude of 686 m, and is one of a series of isolated hills in the southwestern area of the mountain range. It was designed by the local artist Sánchez Barrera and built with donations from the town.

The image of the Virgen Pura y Limpia Concepción (patron saint of Pruna) is brought to this chapel on pilgrimage the first Sunday in May. 

Besides being a place of worship, due to the height of the hill on which it is built, it has particular value as a viewpoint, from which you can see a wide area of the mountains, as well as a point from which to observe the night sky.
