  • The Christ of La Laguna is located on it. A Catholic image of great historical, artistic, religious and cultural value. The carving is of Gothic style of the 16th century. In it, Jesus is still pending cross with three nails in natural size. His head was represented tilted and turned to the right side. His face shows pain and his body and especially his musculature, presented quite correct proportions for the time.

  • The sanctuary is beautiful, but the most attractive is the image of Christ and devotion that has aroused among locals over many years.

  • The "Sanctuary Real del Blessed Christ of La Laguna" is located in the small town of San Cristobal de La Laguna, in Tenerife, one of the islands of the archipelago of the Canary Islands. The sanctuary is a small chapel, but worth a visit both the magnificent silver altarpiece with the crucified Christ, and by our Lady, with a beautiful image! In the chapel there are also many references to St. Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan order-ephemeris and poems.

  • It is obligatory to visit it if you are in La Laguna. It is a church that from the outside looks small, but it is quite spacious inside. He has many years of history and still retains the doors made in tea. It is a beautiful place.
