The chapel of the Font Santa is just off the road from Teulada to Moraira. The chapel is dedicated to saint Vincent Ferrer.
Beside the actual chapel, and in the same building, water can be seen running from the rock face. The spring here was judged to be holy, as when Vicente Ferrer was walking from Alicante to Valencia in the 15th century, he obtained water here to relieve the thirst of his sister Constanza. Water always flows from the spring, even in times of heavy drought. This has made it a place of pilgrimage.
Each year, on the first Sunday in July, the traditional Fiesta of the Font Santa is celebrated around the chapel.
