Villa de Los Realejos
- Arquitectura Religiosa. Capillas -

The cross chapel of Las Toscas is one of the oldest, most documented and most elaborate façade, just as the inscription of the existing medallion mode in the tympanum dates. The date 1907 and the emblem of the Sorrowful Virgin is inscribed. The chapel rigorously follows the heritage arguments of the existing cross chapels in the municipality. This building belongs to the group of chapels dedicated to the diffusion and devotion to the Santo madero in Los Realejos, a tradition that is closely linked to two historical facts, the first one we can look for in the conquest of the island of Tenerife in 1496 and the placement of a wooden cross in what will later be the temple of Santiago Ap stol, of which remains are still preserved within the silver filigree cross of (1677) that houses the aforementioned temple. Meanwhile, the second fact can be associated with the foundation at the beginning of the 17th century of the convent of Santa Lucia belonging to the Franciscan Order, which led to those friars placing crosses in different places away from the population centers establishing their own V a Crucis.

Capilla de Cruz de Las Toscas

The chapel stands on a rectangular floor at a height through the use of stone and mud walls. The roof is made in three waters by means of a pair and row wooden structure that is covered with curved tiles, extending the eaves over the lateral facades to generate small eaves of channel and blanket on a tooth thread. The main façade is rectangular on which a curved neo front of concave-convex lines is executed. The existing span is with a semicircular arch, where the woodwork is made of wood.
