Chapel of Virgen de la Blanca (Cabrejas del Pinar)

The chapel of Virgen de la Blanca is one of the biggest buildings in the village, located about 3 kilometres away from the town centre and built thanks to the wealthy families that returned from America.

 

It was designed and erected towards the end of the 18th century by Cipriano de Miguel Ursua. The church’s design has a Latin cross floor plan and a tower with two bodies and six openings on the façade. The nave is covered by a dome with lunettes and the transept by a dome with spandrels. The sanctuary and the transept’s crossing have octagonal domes with three walls, like the sanctuary.

Inside, the most magnificent feature is the major altarpiece due to its dimensions and the marble-like finishing. It is organised into three sections and an attic with the Vadillo coat of arms.

 

The façade faces south under the tower and a rounded archway. Another arch is used as the entryway and is framed with pillars embedded into the main façade. The entablature is decorated with triglyphs and metopes embellished with rockeries and above it, there is a semi-circular gable with embedded pilasters where there is a chivalric shield. Most of the decorative features are pinnacles, balls and vases.

 

The locals of Talveila, Cubilla, Abejar, Muriel Viejo, Cantalucia, Cubillos, Herrera and Muriel de la Fuente all go to this church in July.
