St. Giles Chapel

La Mata de Morella

This temple dedicated to the villa’s patron saint was built in 1786 and is currently in good conditions following restoration work to allow worship once again. It may have been built as a way for the residents of La Mata to express their gratitude to the saint for having protected them during a plague that devastated the area.

It’s a small-size chapel with a portico featuring three round arches on the front and sides, the latter partially walled.
