Eremita de Sant Jordi, El Puig

The Eremita de San Jordi or Eremita de San Jorge or Hermitage of St George is a Roman Catholic rural chapel or hermitage located just outside the town of El Puig in the province of Valencia, Spain.

History

The hermitage was erected in 1631 to celebrate the 1237 Battle of El Puig and the legendary intervention of St George in favor of the Aragonese forces. This victory by Jaime I de Aragón opened the way for his conquest of Valencia. The interior has mosaic designs celebrating the battle. The chaple was restored in 1926 with an elaborate ceremony.
