    abstract = {Among the many scattered architectural elements in the municipality of C{\'{a}}ceres, an UNESCO World Heritage historical city, there is one in ruins known as the “hermitage of San Jorge”. The current state of knowledge leads some scholars to consider it a religious building, because of its nave structure and a series of paintings with religious motifs. The research summarized in this article: 1.-Has been done following an architectural methodology, gathering known data and making an architectural survey of the building structure which includes the geometry of the ruins and the study of the materials and construction system, as well as a location analysis. 2.- Demonstrates that the sturdy structure of the building ruins corresponds in reality to a water supply cistern, located on a historic road of Caceres' road network and in the vicinity of the medieval tower of Los Mogollones.},
