Capelleta de Santa Anna, Peñíscola
After walking a block from St.Peter's Gate along Calle Ruiz de Carlos, on the left, in a small impasse, you can see the Chapel of St. Anna (Capelleta de Santa Anna or Ermita de Santa Ana). There used to be a medieval church with the same name on this site, but it was destroyed in January 1812 during the siege of the city by Napoleonic troops of General Severoli. In 1827, at the initiative of the daughter of Governor Sebastian Duarte, Anna Duarte i Donoso, this chapel was built on the ruins of the old church, as evidenced by a commemorative plaque.
According to tradition, women come to the chapel after giving birth, making a prayer as a sign of gratitude, and on July 26, the chapel becomes the center of the city's feast of St. Anna (Festivad de Santa Ana).
