Chapel and Fountain of Santa Irene

The beautiful chapel of Santa Irene is located at the foot of the Way of St. James. It is a simple construction with a rectangular ground plan, from the late 17th century, featuring a magnificent carballeira (oak grove) in the surroundings, which is where the “Romería de San Pedro” pilgrimage is held on June 29.

Close by there is a fountain of the same name. It is very popular with pilgrims, since it is called the Fountain of Eternal Youth; according to legend, whoever washes himself with its water will stay young forever.
