Ermita de la Mare de Déu dels Àngels

Church in Sant Mateu

Follow signs from the Plaza Mayor to this loveable chapel perched on a rocky hillside, a 2.5km drive, or somewhat shorter walk, away. It was a monastery until the Spanish Civil War and preserves a baroque chapel with a typical regional tiled floor and a cherub-infested altarpiece. The views are great, and there's an excellent restaurant. Midweek opening is a little unreliable; you can phone to arrange a visit.
