Chiesa di Santa Orosia

Built: 1735

Visited: 2014

Italy

This old chapel is dedicated to Saint Orosia. Orosia is the patron saint of Jaca, a city in the Pyrenees, the center of her cult. Tradition states that she was born in Bayonne and died in 714, martyred by the Moors at Jaca.

The chapel has been abandoned for several years. The attached pastors house house is trashed the past few years and in a very bad state. Hopefully the chapel can be saved before the buildings collapse.
