Detail of the ceiling of the Upper Hermitage of the Santuario de la Virgen de la Fuente, or Sanctuary of the Virgin of the Fountain, showing mudejar wooden panelling with carved and painted floral and vegetal decoration, Penarroya de Tastavins, Matarrana, Teruel, Aragon, Spain. In the 13th century, an image of the Virgin Mary was discovered beside a spring in this spot, and a chapel was built, which was replaced in the 14th century by a Gothic building. The Upper Hermitage was begun in 1341 in Aragonese Gothic style. It has one nave in 5 sections with a wooden roof decorated in mudejar style, with Calatrava crosses and heraldic symbols. The hermitage was declared a Spanish National Monument in 1941 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 under the Mudejar Art bracket. Picture by Manuel Cohen
