Hermitage of Remedios Virgin : Cartama

Visited on the 20 Jan 2019

The most emblematic monument of Cártama is without a doubt the Hermitage of Our Lady of the Remedies, located in the Hill of the Virgin. It was built in the seventeenth century on another original of the fifteenth century, whose time is also the image of the Virgen de los Remedios, patron saint of the town.

This hermitage is of a single ship, covered with vault of half cannon, and in her it emphasizes the Camarín, of hexagonal plant, vault of six cloths and decoration with base of paintings of birds and flowers in socles and pilasters. In it, the image of the Virgin appears in an artistic silver temple. Its beauty is unique, both in its exterior and in its interior, whose walls are adorned with the memories left by the faithful who come to visit it.

The path to the Hermitage, always on the rise, is winding, and is an authentic natural viewpoint from which you can contemplate a magnificent panoramic view of the Guadalhorce Valley. In addition, there is a new access to the back of the mount of the Ermita called Trascastillo, which is part of the hiking trail “Sierra de los Espartales”.

In 2004, the entire complex was declared a Site of Cultural Interest by the Junta de Andalucía.

IX, the generalized outbreak of the rebellion of Umar Ibn Hafsun against the Cordovan power supposes the meeting in Munt Nis of an important population and the consequent construction of the castle, that is consolidated during second half of s. IX. In the year 923 it is conquered by the Cordovan troops and continues in use during the Caliphate and Taifa kingdoms, falling into decay shortly after.

In the upper part of the El Padrón area and about 7 kilometers from Estepona are the ruins of the foundations of Castillo del Nicio. It is about the ruins of a ninth century fortress, of which the walls and several towers are preserved. They played a very important role during the rebellion of Omar Ben Hafsun against the Cordovan emirs, being finally conquered by the emilar troops the year 923.

Its layout is almost rectangular, adapted to the variations of the terrain, and has all the characteristics of having been raised during the Caliphate period. Its towers and masonry walls have disappeared in some places and what remains of them does not raise more than 4 meters from the ground. They are in a progressive state of ruin.
