Villa de Los Realejos
- Arquitectura Religiosa. Capillas -

This chapel is located on Cruz Verde street, at the landing of M rquez street, very close to the old Franciscan convent. It is a building of the twentieth century developed as a great classical cover, which was raised by reusing materials from the old convent. It belongs to the group of buildings 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 then be to the temple of Santiago Ap stol, of which remains are still conserved within the silver filigree cross of (1677) that houses the mentioned 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.
