CAPILLA DE CRUZ DE LA CALLE EL MEDIO DE ARRIBA

Villa de Los Realejos
- Arquitectura Religiosa. Capillas -




Located right at the crossroads that from the 16th century gave entrance to the Realejo high, this construction has been erected since the second half of the 19th century and belongs to the group of chapels dedicated to the diffusion and devotion to the Holy wood in Los Realejos, 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 that 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. In the twentieth century I suffered great changes that varied their original appearance.



Capilla de Cruz de la calle El Medio de Arriba

Building of three facades with trapezoidal plant and two heights. The lower floor is built as a basement capable of absorbing the differences in dimensions of the different streets forming a small square with a front access staircase. Above it stands the main building in which three half-point openings framed in with cement moldings imitating ashlars are practiced, placing on the central axis the largest access cover. This frontis is crowned by a ledge with a sill topped by a triangular front n with a central sword.
