The refurbishment of this chapel, a project of Sebastián Arquitectos, is included in the second phase of a series of interventions on the French Way as it passes through Aragón. Facing the Leyre mountains, amid elms and oaks, the building once treasured an important collection of Romanesque paintings, on display today at the Diocesan Museum of Jaca. The new volume rests on the previous one with a composition of horizontal lines that prolongs the original brick masonry. The new front is slightly set back with regards to the original one, and the roof slabs descend along the facade. Outside, the stones recovered from the chapel are placed in an orderly pattern that invites visitors inside.
