Santa Inés underground Chapel. Millenary legend

The subterranean chapel of Santa Inés is an ancient cave used as a place of worship by various religions.

One of the most difficult architectural elements to visit is the subterranean Chapel of Santa Agnés. More than anything because the timetable seems to be done by a part-time official, so he plays early to visit. The location is a bit strange, because where we expect to see a cave, we find a medieval-looking building, converted into a restaurant. to reach it, we must take the road around Sant Antoni by the furthest partof the sea. We can take the roundabout as a reference and look at the indication to the right of the road.

What to find in the chapel of Santa Inés

I’ve only seen two sundials in Ibiza, and one of them is in this building. You can park in the restaurant and follow the walking tour or you can play the bass of the car and park following the signs on a plain in front of the cave. A half-stone fence, half of bars separates us from an entrance dug into the rock and giving access to the chapel. The local legend tells us that the image of the saint appeared mysteriously in the cave, and that whenever they tried his transfer he ended up returning to the cave without any apparent explanation. History tells us that the cave was used as a hiding place in naval incursions and probably in the Christian persecutions of the first centuries after Christ. Muslim remains have been found that have been preserved along with the 17th century chapel.
