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 Building Society 'El Progreso ' builds 17 houses in El Toscal at the end of the 19th century, between the streets of San Mart and Santiago The General Plan of Urban Planning of 1951 affected El Toscal, approving widening of streets and interior equipment in several blocks and the total rebuilding of the neighborhood, remodeling and tracing was authorized. The small size of the plots, characteristic of the self-construction areas, has delayed the reform that the Plan entrusted to the private initiative.
