From time to time, history and legend are mixed in a somewhat capricious way, giving rise to cases such as the so-called “Monastery of the Devil”.

The ruinous Hermitage of the Christ of the Blood of Medina Sidonia and its spooky legend

This place, initially called the Huerta de San José Monastery, belonged to the religious order of the Carmelites of Saint Joseph. Located in the town of Carmona, in the province of Seville (Spain), it has a plant in the shape of the letter L. The building was left unfinished and the cloister was never completed.

Today Aventuras Entresierras (one of the best YouTube channels that I follow: I recommend it) has published today an interesting video in which it shows us the ruins of this place, and also reviews its history and the macabre legend that there is about it, which owes the nickname “Monastery of the Devil” for which it is well known today. To know the whole truth you have to get to the end of the video (is in Spanish, you can activate the automatic subtitles in English in the bottom bar of the player):
