PATRIMONY

LEPE BOOK

Lepe counted in other times with a rich artistic patrimony, but by natural circumstances like the great earthquake of Lisbon of 1755, and human like the war of Independence, it lost part of this one. At the present time, they deserve to be visited personal and immovable property that conforms their historical patrimony and that we detailed next: 1.- Parish Church Santo Domingo de Guzmán 2.- Chapel of San Cristobal 3.- The Tower of Catalan 4.- Ajimez 5.- Enclosure of the Beautiful.

Parish church Santo Domingo de Guzmán Historical-artistic monument by Real Decree 83/1985 was declared. Although the exact date of its construction is not known, is thought that it was founded at the beginning of century XVI by Doña Teresa de Guzmán, Duchess of Béjar, for penance. Probably outside construe

of century XIV. Of its original factory, of style to mudéjar, described as church of arches with bishop, as soon as they are left rest as a result of the different restorations that have suffered. Belfry, destroyed by the earthquake of Lisbon, was constructed in 1799 following predominant the architectonic canons but always considering the tendencies of our masterful local master builders. Its austere main facade correctly combines the baroque one with mudéjar, whereas their other two facades are characterized by the simplicity of their lines. The church, with its three ships of rectangular plant, follows liturgical the inclination traditional west-this. The central ship, of greater height and width than the lateral ones, is hopeless with apse of flat head. The covers offer solutions that are everything a catalogue of medieval tardy and modern architecture, emphasizing the geometric reasons that they follow the models of the under-Renaissance The present sacramental chapel is dedicated to the virgin of the Beautiful one, pattern of Lepe. Its altarpiece, destroyed during the civil war, came from the old “franciscano” convent, located in the environs of the Lump. Of him the “salomónicas” columns have been only conserved that frame the central arc and the dressing room of Rococo style. In the lateral streets they appear individual niches with sculptures of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and San Roque, pattern of the city, this one last one dated around 1600.

It deserves to emphasize the magnificent sedente image of the virgin of the Beautiful one, catalogue policromada sculpture as Fernandez builds of the circle of Jorge Alemán, of principles of century XVI. We were before a iconográfica variety little frequents, since one is an own eucarística efigie only of Spain and the French noon, that represents a tabernacle in the chest alluding the months that Maria took to Jesus in the sine. It was the titular image of the missing franciscano convent. Cloth has to mention also of relief which it reproduces the calvario, whose iconography has ample medieval resonances and a linen cloth of the Immaculate one of the Arpino horseman, of towards 1600. The altarpiece of the greater altar, of end of century XVII, coming from the missing convent of the Mercy, is of policromada wood of a body with three streets. In its interior they appear the sculptures of Santo Domingo, of century XVI, San Juan Evangelista, of second half of the XV, and San Cayetano, of the XVIII. Of great beauty they are the images of the Mercy, Sevillian anonymous work of century XVII; the Boy Jesus, of the circle of Mountain Martinez, both coming from the convent of the Mercy; the Hope of the XVII and the Christ of the Sea, anonymous work of the first third of century XVI, and to title of its chapel, located in the quarter of Don Ramiro. It emphasizes in addition by its value the rich one of ajuar liturgical, with under-Renaissance pieces of century XVI.

Tower of the Catalan

. Chapel of San Crist贸bal In a crossroad between Ayamonte and Seville, the hermitage of San Crist贸bal had to be raised from century XV - in their interior have been some currencies coined in the days of Kings Cat贸licos- like one of the points of forced prayer to those who happened through Lepe. This hermitage is at the moment in rehabilitation process to act the interesting as of point of contact of the culture - exhibition hall and conferences and unquestionably like an emblematic place to present to those who visit to us. Due to the long to live of mud茅jar in these earths, this construction is included within this architectonic style, always with the contribution of the masterful local master builders. The earthquake of Lisbon caused damage in its primitive factory; of this one the ship with cross-sectional arc and the greater chapel with side eight vaults are conserved. Their simple cover, of great popular flavour, is possibly consequence of the reforms undertaken after the mentioned earthquake.

Tower of almenara constructed within the defensive plan of Felipe II to protect the coast of the attacks Turkberberiscos. Although the exact date of its construction is not known, this one locates at the end of century XVI or principles of the XVII.

Ajimez It has been declared like good of cultural interest in 1985 by the Spanish State and in 1995 by the Meeting of Andalusia. This architectonic element is a clear example of the height that the architecture to mudéjar had in the province of Huelva from second half of century XIV to centuries XV and XVI. One is a window divided by window on which they unload two twin arcs. .

Enclosure of the Beautiful one

It is third in extension of the province of Huelva, with a surface of 2,530 hectares. Its altitude on the level of the sea oscillates between 0 and 10 meters. It emphasizes in this place, by its singularity, the arrow of New Shade (also well-known like arrow of the Rompido), a sandy formation that advances compares to the coast and that at the moment reaches a length of almost 18 km. Its origin, for more than 200 years, has had to the contribution of materials of the Piedras River, to the mareal flow and prevailing winds of the southwest. It has an annual growth of approximately 40 meters. This formation, unique in all national coast, is considered like a morphology geology jewel.

The beaches and dunes serve as place of nest building for “chorlitejo” “patinegro”, the gull, the gannet, “pagaza” “piquirroja” and “alcaraván”, besides to contain some colonies of “charrancitos”2 and basket makers. The salt marshes are the place of refuge for the fishing eagle, diverse “limícolas” species, “vuelvepiedras”, the common “zarapito”3, etc. Between the reptiles, the chameleon is the most emblematic species, since in Europe its area of distribution is restricted to the provinces of Malaga, Cadiz, Huelva and Portuguese Algarve.

Beaches The Antilla The Antilla is the main beach of Lepe, to less than 5 kilometres of the city, becomes a great space opened to the sea of more than 20 kilometres of the coast. With the tourist takeoff of Spain in years 60, Lepe and its beach of the Antilla begin to emphasize like tourist point of interest. The constructions proliferate and during years 70 a national tourism eminently and more concretely formed by originating people of inner Andalusia is based in this beach. From mid the 80 one reconsiders the tourism in Lepe and the Antilla, and the pertinent measures are taken to promote these coasts and to create the necessary infrastructure for the arrival of an elite tourism. A clear example of it is the construction of the School of HostelerĂ­a, a building of 1993 square meters in which techniques of kitchen, restoration, languages, computer science study, etnologĂ­a, and all those fundamental matters for the improvement of the tourist services.

17

Still today, the beach of the Antilla continues conserving the familiar atmosphere of its origins. Although their hotels congregate every time to greater number of no national tourists, the Antilla continues having visitors of the Spanish inner cities (among them they emphasize Madrid, Badajoz, CĂĄceres, Seville and Cordova and, in recent years has been increased remarkably the presence of tourists of the north of Spain) that from last the 5 years fill the beach to the 100% of their capacity, considering in addition the annual growth of its city-planning infrastructure.

Islantilla In July of 1990 the Mancomunidad de Islantilla is created to develop to city-planning projects in beaches of the Antilla (Lepe) and Island Cristina. From then the tourist infrastructure one unfolds and residential hotels of high quality, as well as zones are constructed that monopolize the attention of the national and international tourism. In their more centric area, on foot of beach, hotels, apartments and a great commercial centre and of leisure are integrated in which the visitor will find establishments of very diverse typologies, the premises of restoration, as well as a multi cinema with six rooms of projection, seat of the Festival the International of Unpublished Cinema of Islantilla. Islantilla counts in addition on a golf course of 27 holes that extends throughout the park that dominates the excellent beach of

18


Islantilla, on that has extraordinary views. This location and the attractive club of golf prepared and equipped to take care of competitions of professionals of the highest category, makes of this place a wonderful frame for the practice of this sport. The high quality of their facilities and the permanent school of golf have turned it the seat of winter of the Swedish PGA and scene of competitions of elite like the Spanish PGA, the Challenge Tour or the Open of Andalusia. By all it, Islantilla aims more at being one of beaches demanded by the tourists centre and norteuropeans that, throughout all the year and mainly in summer, visit this place, since it offers alternative activities to the sun and the beach. Thus we can practice nautical sports like windsurf, the candle, etc., can make to walk of path, visits in boat to natural places, and practice other so many sport modalities as voley-beach, triatlón, pádel, basketball, tennis and soccer room.

Shady Nueva New Shade is nailed in the Natural Place Salt marshes of Stones and Arrow of New Shade. Near 18 kilometres of white and fine sand, in her the lovers of the naturism can enjoy the first nudist beach of the province of Huelva. From the East to the west, they are appearing different salt marshes and sandy grounds where we can observe the multitude of terrestrial plants that throughout

19

the time have been colonizing the system to dune. In direction of the west the vegetation increases in height and thickness, emphasizing the intense “retamales” of the old Tunney net. A place is this one where marine and coastal species of fauna like “charranes” coexist, gulls, etc., happening through reptiles like the small lizard “colilarga”, whose populations present/display extremely clear libreas, in addition to rabbits and hares. The ruins of the Tunny net remember times last of economic splendour related to the advantage of the tuna, that was captured by thousands near the coast by means of the ingenious structures of the tunny nets, that were pierced arts of fishing of permanent form and which they constituted a great trap. Their ruins are only inhabited of exclusive form, nowadays, by common storks that they occupy year after year the nest, located on the chimney of the enclosure. Really, New Shade is a natural paradise with diverse ecosystems submissive constant changes in which the lovers of the nature will be able to enjoy her in all their splendour.

The Lump The port of the Lump, fishing and sport port of Lepe, is located in the mouth of the Piedras River, that it connects with the Atlantic. This port, flourishing in the antiquity and enough apogees from century XVIII to the first decades of century XX, consists between its facilities with a market for the fish transaction, an ice factory for the conservation of the fishing and almost 150 quarters salting hoses. The boats of the port are dedicated mainly to the artisan

20


fishing, reason why it will not be difficult found, while a simple stroll occurs, to men sewing networks or preparing the tools for its work. Their spotted grounds covered with networks invite to on foot give a very special stroll of sea. From this enclave part of the dead ground can be contemplated denominated natural place Salt marshes of the river Piedras and Flecha de Shady Nueva. Here it will be able to visit the Marine Classroom and its aquarium next to the shipyard and to make routes by the river in boat, as well as to taste seafood and fish of the coast in its hospitable bars and restaurants.
