Popularly known as the hermitage of Calvario, it is located in the upper part of the town, at the foot of the mountain of Las Cruces and between the streets of El Muro and Jardines. This construction dates from the late nineteenth century and the road to the chapel is populated with small chapels with each of the steps of the Passion in small altarpieces on ceramic pieces. At the present time, it is being studied to declare the complex a historic-artistic monument, since the Calvary is one of the most remarkable in the Valencian Community.
In fact, until 1936 it conserved several cypress trees dating back to the 16th century.

The hermitage is dedicated to the patron saint of Tavernes, the Christ of the Blood, who has always had great devotion in the town, especially since his miraculous intervention was attributed to the disappearance of the cholera epidemic in 1885. The hermitage is a slender building of regular proportions, facing the village. It has a neoclassical altar is adorned with numerous gilded and highlight the brightly colored stained glass windows, the details of the main altar and the top of the building, which worships the patron saint of the city.
