Bayona: Hermitage of Santa Marta

Located in the Peninsula of Santa Marta, in Bayona (Galicia, Spain), this church was built at the end of the 13th century. It was burned and destroyed by the English corsair Sir Francis Drake in 1585, after his landing on the beach of Santa Marta, near this Catholic temple. The hermitage was rebuilt by the neighbors. At present it conserves its original Romanesque route and other vestiges, like the south door on and the brackets. In the winter the schedule of masses in the morning is: Saturday at 17:00 hours and Sundays at 10:00 in the morning. Every July 29, a solemn Mass and a procession in honor of Santa Marta are celebrated in the hermitage. The feasts of the parish, in honor of the saint, are celebrated in mid-August.
