The original hermitage devoted to Saint Peter was destroyed at the beginning of Spanish Civil War (1936). In the esplanade, where for a long time the ruins were standing, the hermitage we can see nowadays, was eventually reconstructed following the guidelines of the architect Miguel Fisac and it has been inaugurated in 1983.
The building today is composed by a main nave, to which the rest of religious annexes are added. This hermitage stands out for its simplicity and for collecting the essence of the religious constructions of popular character with its firm, bright and serene white-washed walls; the most notable decorative element is the use of white concrete set in flexible formwork, in the entrance porch; a characteristic element of the architect native from La Mancha who set up this hermitage. In addition, from its construction in the 80’s to the present day, the hermitage of San Pedro has been evolving and improving its appearance and structure.
During the Festival is set up an outdoor stage for small-scale performances and about 400 or 500 seats for spectators.
