About

The hermitage of Tanya appears in history in 1371 under the name ecclesia Sancte Marie de Tanyano. At that time, hermits were isolated sedentary monks. From the XNUMXth century, the function of the hermit evolved. Still a member of the Church, the hermit will become an advisor, a confidant for the local population. He no longer has the vocation to be isolated, but lives in the Catalan society of his time; he has an important role just like the parish priest.
The church can only be visited by appointment. Information at the Tourist Office.

This hermitage was the initial church of the village. It appears in history in 1371 under the name ecclesia Sancte Marie de Tanyano. At that time, the hermits were isolated sedentary monks. From the XNUMXth century, the function of the hermit will evolve. Still a member of the Church, the hermit will become an adviser, a confidant for the local population. He no longer has the vocation to be isolated, but lives in the Catalan society of his time; he has an important role just like the parish priest.
Tanya was inhabited until the French Revolution. It still retains various altarpieces today, in particular that of the Virgin, gilded with leaf from 1774 to 1778.
