Hermitage of Saint Irene

The hermitage of Santa Irene, located in the village of the same name near Santiago de Compostela, is a landmark for pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago. Built in the 17th century and dedicated to Saint Peter, this rectangular chapel stands out for its simple beauty and its location on the French Way. Surrounded by a beautiful oak grove, it offers walkers a spiritual refuge and the opportunity to enjoy the peace of the natural environment. The hermitage is the site of the feast of St. Peter on June 29, adding a sense of community to the pilgrimage experience. In addition, the nearby fountain, known for its alleged healing powers, offers a welcome respite on the Camino de Santiago and is an integral part of the rich tradition and legends surrounding the Camino de Santiago.
