This mid 16th century hermitage was originally built by alderman Francisco de Morales and his wife. Although it appeared to be a little uncertain as to what it should be called, since variously it was referred to as La Vera Cruz, the potentially disconcerting, Hospital de la Sangre and also San Juan de Letrán. The latter occurred through its association with the parish, one of a number created by the Catholic Monarchs following their re-conquest of Ronda in 1785. However, the nearby church of this parish seems to have disappeared, or collapsed, about the same time, but its fittings and furnishings took occupation within the new San Juan de Letrán hermitage. Among the most important images carried across was the Virgen de la Paz, the patron Saint of Ronda, much revered for centuries and from whom stems the present day name of the church.

The church consists of a nave covered by 18th century baroque vaulting that obscures the earlier 16th century Mudejar framework. There is a side chapel within the apse in which the statue of the Virgen de la Paz is located. Gilded baroque decoration covers the façade, introduced in the 18th century and now completely restored. The church is crowned by an angled belfry, in a style typical of the 18th century and the front entrance of the church facing into the Plaza del Beato Diego José de Cadiz exhibits a delightful painted façade. A compact, but none-the-less interesting building to discover.

Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.

During our exploration of Ronda, my wife and I stopped to visit Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Paz which is located the older section of Ronda. During our visit, I learned that this church houses the image of Our Lady of Peace, the patron of Ronda. Though the current home of gilded images, this 16th century building used to be a monastery as well as a hospital.

The simple wooden pews are in stark contrast to the detailed images located near the front of the church. Though there is not as much to see when compared to the other cathedrals and churches I visited in Spain it was well worth a brief visit.

It is not a very large church, although it stands out for its exterior, combining colors and white and its small bell tower. In the baroque style interior with the Patroness of Ronda, Our Lady of Peace. It must be a place used by Rondeños for important celebrations, the day we were there a wedding had just been celebrated.
