St. Barbara Chapel

La Mata de Morella

From the 17th century, it’s attached to a two-story building.

The temple measures some 25 metres deep by 10 metres wide and it’s built of masonry with ashlar reinforcements, buttresses and a tile gable roof that also covers the hermitage house. The main entrance opens at the foot through a wooden semi-circular door featuring a stone portal topped by an empty niche. The pediment is triangular with a more recently-built bell gable. There is a second side access at the third corridor under a voussoir arch that leads to a passageway to the adjoining house.
