It is located to the south of the town, not far from it. It is a free and contemporary building built with bricks. It has a nave of unique section which is covered with sheet wood to two waters. In its head there is the greatest chapel, and in the feet, the vestibule fitted between vestry and another room. The cover is inclined, to two waters. The lateral walls are translucent with crystal pieces.
In the facade, in the side of the epistle, there is a high brick wall that serves to maintain the bell. It is carrying out the function of a steeple.
This construction was built between 1.967 and 1.970 on the lot the old romanesque hermitage that was demolished because people said it threatened ruins . The design of the actual hermitage was work of the architect Victorian Benosa.
Formerly, the 25 of March, festivity of the Our Lady of Assumption, the town went in procession to this hermitage and in a mass was celebrated inside of it. This tradition disappeared but a mass every day in the month of May continues being celebrated in this hermitage. In addition, people also goes to the hermitage the 26 of August, second day of the greater celebrations of Lupiñén in honor to Saint Ginés. Formerly, this day went away in procession with Saint Ginés until the same one. The Saint went on an adorned pedestal with many flowers and basil and it was taken by the "quintos" of the town that year. This tradition to go in procession with the Saint until the hermitage had disappeared too and it was not celebrated from year 1.950. The last year, neighbors of the town decided to recover this tradition.
THE WOODCARVING OF OUR LADY OF THE ORCHARD
The image of Our Lady of the Orchard is a polychromatic woodcarving. It is an interesting romanesque piece which represents the virgin seated on a small seat that is maintaining between the lap of its knees to the infant Jesus, equally seated. The glances of both go to the front and we did not observe any characteristic of communication between both.
