Built in the 13th century, it is one of the few examples of late Romanesque architecture in the Castellon province. Its façade is located on the epistle side of the building. It has Romanesque decorations around its door and a barrel vaulted roof. In 1634, a porch was added, made of stone blocks and two Gothic rounded arches that support a sloped roof.
It has a simple bell gable and just one bell. In 1969 it was rebuilt, expanding the porticoed terrace to the base of the temple.
The hermitage of El Salvador is located at the foot of the castle of l'Alcalatén, 3 km from the town center. It can be accessed by road CV-190, direction Lucena del Cid.
