The chapel is one of the oldest Christian buildings in Marbella; The construction of the Hermitage of Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz can be dated to the 16th century, which was later expanded to include a dressing room tower in the 18th century.
It consists of a single nave, inside stands out the choir at the foot, which uses a Tuscan column to support it, which sinks into the baptismal font below.
The church is accessible through a large gate, which is framed as a triumphal arch with the pointed central arch. This gate is raised by a staircase with rounded shapes; It is used to mark the main axis and thus to manifest the internal organization of the facade. A barred air door above the gate with bulbous tips and a cross.
On the outside, the façade made of carved stone and armored stone, the small bell tower and, above all, the exterior of the dressing room with an octagonal structure are to be emphasized.
