Religious hermitage built in 1703 with the intervention of Francisco Hurtado Izquierdo and Blas de Valdez.
It was a meeting place for the members of the Cultural Circle Juan XXIII, in its first period.
Declared good of cultural interest on October 26, 1983.
Due to the cracks that appeared in the Church of San Nicolás de la Villa at the beginning of October 2006, the cults were moved to the Ermita de la Alegría or Chapel of the Virgen de la Alegría, closed for many years, pending a comprehensive restoration.
The images of the Brotherhood of the Sentence, which now deals with said Chapel, were also transferred.
