The small chapel d'en Serra, also known as Sa Capelleta, is to be found on the top of the hill of the same name, 393 metres high. To reach the chapel, you take the turning to the right towards the lane de la Vénda de Benimussa a little before reaching Sant Josep de Sa Talaia from Ibiza, and then turning right following the signposts. The last stretch of the route is on foot (20 minutes) along a path that ascends to the top of Puig de Sa Capelleta, from where the island of Formentera can be seen with extraordinary views over Ibiza.

The religious building originates from a promise made by Vicent Serra when he had to go to the Algerian war, according to which if he returned he would build a chapel. He fulfilled his promise and after his return in 1919, built the chapel himself and also made the ceramic Christ to be found in it. Vicent Serra died at the age of 74, five days before the blessing of the chapel, that was held on May 29, 1919.

As part of the patron festivities for Sant Josep de Sa Talaia, every year a popular excursion is organised to Sa Capelleta.

Finally, on the same Camí de Benimussa are the wells Pou d'en Benet and Pou de Benimussa, both recently restored by the Consell d'Eivissa i Formentera.
