It is located in the Mountain Range Caballera, at the beginning of the precipice of Saint Quitery or Saint Cristopher. The enclosure of the hermitage was delimited in one of the cavities of the rock located to about 30 meters of the precipice, to medium height, of an enormous granitic wall.

The access to it is difficult. To go up the last section there is a narrow and lofty stoned steps. The rock provides the ground, the ceiling and one of the fronts of the enclosure that is closed by means of a long wall made of rubblework raised in the same edge of the precipice.

The cavity is divided in several sections. The cetral section was the hermitage. Inside of it there are rest of a table-altar and an altarpiece made in plaster.
