The Hermitage of Granyena, erected in the eponymous Horta neighbourhood, is a medieval church protected as a cultural asset of local interest. With baroque architecture, is a simple but lovely structure which recalls the city's past.

Although it started out as a mosque, the current hermitage is of an austere baroque with popular architectural details incorporated throughout the last four centuries.

The original structure dates from the 14th century and is compacted with the rectory. The mother of God of Granyena is the patron saint of Alcoletge, although the hermitage belongs to a rural neighbourhood of Horta de Lleida, irrigated by the canals of Fontanet and Torres and a stone’s throw from La Mitjana Park.

The simple façade is characterised by a main door with a flat stone slab, a bull’s-eye window and a bell gable.

Observations

  • The chapel belongs ecclesiastically to the parish of the Sagrada Família.
  • It is located on the left bank of the Segre river, half way from Alcoletge to Lleida.
  • In tribute to the old Aplec (festival) of the place, mass is celebrated in honor of Our Lady of Grenyana every third Sunday of September.
