Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz Hermitage

Following calle Ancha towards the North, we find the Santo Cristo chapel.

It was built in the second half of the XVI century as part of the old Franciscan Convent. It is one of the oldest temples of the town. Its construction dates back to the XVI century.

It consists of one sole nave and in its interior of note are the choir and the

Tuscan column which sinks into the baptismal font.

Of note is its facade of hewn stone and armorial stones, and on the exterior of the niche, of octagonal structure, the double pilasters which flank ocular windows, and plinth with pinnacle in the angles which support a glazed ceramic roof, also octagonal.
