The Hermitage of Santo Cristo de La Vera Cruz is the oldest temple in Chiclana and was built in the second half of the 16th century.

The current facade of the chapel reflects the many reforms that it has gone through along its history and it is very simple. Highlights include lattice atrium and the huge cross that presides over it.

It houses the brotherhood of Vera Cruz, the oldest existing penance in Andalusia.
