Villa de Los Realejos
- Arquitectura Religiosa. Capillas -

Building of a religious character that can be included within the group dedicated to the dissemination and devotion to the Holy wood in Los Realejos, with an increase of these during the twentieth century. 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, from 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.
