Hermitage of Santo Toribio

Hermitage located at the base of the hill where the magnificent Cristo del Otero is found

This small hermitage, located at the foot of the Cristo del Otero hill, is the scene of one of the most popular and special festivals in the city, the Romería de Santo Toribio, declared a Festival of Regional Tourist Interest. Inside, supported by a multitude of columns and completely whitewashed, you can see the central carving of Jesus Crucified (it bears a great resemblance to the Christ of Mercy who parades at Easter), projects for the monument to Alonso Berruguete and the grave of the great sculptor Victorio Macho, covered by a simple white marble tombstone.
