Abandoned church. The ancient Benicalaf Church is located at the crossroads between the Camí d’Uixó and the Camí Estret along the old Vía Augusta. It currently stands in the middle of an orchard in Benavites, surrounded by fields of orange trees, approximately 1 km to the east of the town centre. Inside the church are frescoes representing allegories of the Eucharist, the Immaculate Conception, the Holy Trinity and the Apostles that could date back to the 18th century. In the early 20th century, the temple was desacralised and converted into a warehouse and cattle pen.
