(We meet at the Museum at 17.00 hours - everyone welcome)
We will travel through time from the construction of the Hermitage in medieval times until its transformation into a Funeral Chapel in the 19th century. It was built between the 14th and 15th centuries AD, and dedicated to the popular worship of the Saints John: the Baptist and the Evangelist. The passage of years shows both in its walls and underground. Thanks to restoration work and archaeological excavations, we have an approximate idea of the different uses made of the building. The Old Cemetery is yet another example of the different burial spaces used by the town of Xàbia from its founding to the present day. It is the site of a number of constructions and areas dedicated to the preservation of the memory of our ancestors.
