Villa de Los Realejos
- Arquitectura Religiosa. Capillas -

As a result of the popular initiative, this chapel was built in the early twentieth century, its origin is located on a cross located previously on the street that bears his name, which marked the historical limit of the Los Barros neighborhood. It belongs to the group of chapels dedicated to the diffusion and devotion to the Holy wood 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 from a wooden cross in what will later be to 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.
