From the lookout, the path takes us to the Santa Quiteria chapel, dating back to the 16th century. It underwent some modifications in the 18th century. It has a rectangular nave covered by a star shaped vault (apsidal section), lunette (rest of the nave); a chapel and sacristy attached to the southern part of the building. A procession takes place here on the 22nd of May or the closest Sunday.
