Hermitage of Santo Cristo de Marbella
A historic church in the Old Town near Muralla del Castillo, the Iglesia del Santo Cristo was built in the 16th century as part of a Franciscan convent.
The church facade features stone details and an octagonal glazed-ceramic tile roof. The interior is a humble space with a single nave and Andalusian-style decor.
Nearby is another historic church, the Capilla de San Juan de Dios on Calle Caridad. This Mudéjar (Moorish Christian style) chapel was part of a hospital built by the Spanish Monarchs in the 16th century.
This is a small and somewhat unassuming church, but the iconography within is impressive and moving.
