La Ermita de San Ambrosio

La ermita de San Ambrosio is an archeological ruin in the Parque de La Breña in the village of San Ambrosio. A rare example of a visiogoth ruin, it lies between Barbate and Vejer. Easily overlooked it is well worth a visit and is within walking distance of Vejer. Although it lies mostly in ruins the arched dome roof of one of the buildings remains intact and has a beautiful acoustic quality. White storks nest on a high wall at the far end of the ruined structure. Manoli, one of our Spanish teachers here at the La Janda leads a walking activity which visits this place of special cultural and historical interest. One of many in the region of La Janda!
