An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Chapel of Nuestra Señora de Escardiel


The Chapel of Nuestra Señora de Escardiel is located three kilometres north-northwest of Castilblanco de los Arroyos, in the so-called 'Chaparral de la Virgen' or 'Chaparral de Escardiel' (42 hectares). It was built on the site of an ancient medieval settlement. It is a small, simple construction built in the Mudejar style, with two naves with coffered ceilings, except in the chancel, which has a hemispherical vault, which has been greatly altered in recent times.

It is home to Nuestra Señora Santa María de Escardiel, to whom the Sierra de Castilblanco is dedicated.
