Capelleta de la Mare de Déu Pobra de Benibrai

The La Mare de Déu Pobra Chapel is located in the district known as Benibrai or Benibrahim, an ancient Islamic hamlet located a short distance from the town of Xaló. It was built in October 2002, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of her canonical coronation.

Tradition has it that in 1731, a farmer from Xaló called Tio Canet found an image of La Mare de Déu del Consol buried inside a wooden box. Due to its poor state of conservation and pitiful appearance, it was called La Mare de Déu Pobra (The Poor Virgin Mary).

The chapel is a solid, whitewashed hut with a low, slightly sloping roof. On the wall facing the road, there is a ceramic panel with the image of La Mare de Déu and a scene depicting the farmer finding her image. Immediately below, there is a black-marble plaque with a dedication to La Mare de Déu Pobra. Underneath, flower offerings are regularly placed on a bed of stones.

The image of La Mare de Déu Pobra is preserved in the main altar of the parish church of Santa Maria in Xaló.
