The determining factor that gave light to Toscal was the expansive stage of the city of Santa Cruz in the eighteenth century, when the primacy of overseas trade fell on it because of the destruction of the Port of Garachico by the eruption of 1706. It was a popular colonization that surrounded the center of the city, where the bourgeois who headed to the port trade settled. In its origins El Toscal, or Los Toscales or Las Toscas, constitutes an extensive area of orchards, cement and wasteland that covers the west and north of the primitive hull, then the successive, spontaneous expansions begin, which lack relationship between the parties; also in El Toscal.

At the end of the 19th century, a significant stage of the construction of the City began with the appearance of urban entrepreneurship (building societies) in 1860-80, which collaborated to the second major expansion of the city. The Society of Buildings 'E Progress ' built at the end of the 19th century 17 houses in El Toscal, between the streets San Mart and Santiago

The General Urban Planning Plan of 1951 affected El Toscal, approving widening of streets and interior equipment in several blocks and authorizing the total rebuilding of the neighborhood, remodeling and tracing. The small size of the plots, characteristic of the self-construction areas, has delayed the reform that the Plan entrusted to the private initiative.

The unit consisting of all the buildings that occupy the plots between the passages 1 of Ravina and 2 of Ravina is protected. The scale and relationship of the buildings with these passages is valued, as well as the general compositional characteristics of their facades. They are single-family houses of a plant with similar facade composition: lateral access opening and one or two window openings. The main facades face Ravina Street 1 and the back u2013 which repeat the same composition as the main ones, but being the only window openings lead to Ravina Street 2. The horizontal composition presents a continuous smooth basement, a central body with window openings and as crowns, cornices - some with decorations - and smooth parapets or with balustrades of material. All the openings are rectangular with curved lintel, with a perimeter decoration molding with detail of a dovela envelope and a railing rail. The carpenters are two-leaf wood. Elements of interest: Woodwork.
