Ermita de San Vicente


Les Coves de Vinromà

This ermita, or small church, was built in the 17th century. The building is made up of one nave, with buttresses dividing it into three sections, in addition to the main chapel, and high choir at its entrance. Rounded arches support a simple ribbed vault, while the chancel has a ribbed vault with crossing tiercerons. The simple front façade features a door with a rounded arch, and a circular alfiz that surrounds the voussoirs. A rectangular window and a ledge split into two parts, topped by a bell gable is located above the arch. Small windows illuminate the interior.

The church is made of rough stone, although the doorway’s arch and the final section of the buttresses are made of ashlar in order to strengthen the structure.  The roof is double-sloped.
