Situated on a promontory which offers a view of the municipality, it is a modest building, but one of great artistic and historical value. At first, it was a simple wall, where the three crosses were built. Its current architectural importance comes from the grey and reddish stonework which characterises the entire site, which has no link to the cavalries of the Canary Islands, contrasting with the white walls.

El Calvario serves as an architectural and performance space for depicting the catechetical principles of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ. Although it is not "specifically" performed for the Easter celebrations, it is associated with these liturgical events.
