Surrounded by orange groves, is attached to the first of the houses of the place of Sant Bernabeu, south of the municipality and immediately to the term of Alzira. Benicull was segregated from the municipality of Polinyà de Xúquer in the summer of 2003.

In front of its facade, decorated in light yellow and flanked by pilasters, has a courtyard enclosed by a gate and wire mesh. On the wide door with ogival finial the name of the hermitage is read in large painted characters. Above it opens a great loophole in the shape of cross and finishing off the baroque pediment the belfry stands out with cimbalillo, pinnacles and weather vane. The roof is a double slope, of tiles.

Its interior is rectangular, elongated, and with pilasters attached reinforcing the walls that support a lowered barrel vault. In the presbytery there is a niche decorated with ceramic tile arch with a modern copy of the image of the patron saint (the original is preserved in the parish church), and on a shelf, the Virgin of the Forsaken and the Infant Jesus of Prague.
