Santa Pola - Calle Calvario
Calle Calvario
The Calvary is a leading area of Santa Pola. This fishing district, built in Moorish style at the beginning of the 20th century, is distinguished by its chapel that houses the Virgen de la Piedad.
The chapel, composed of the 14 Stations of the Cross, stands at the end of the Calvary.
In the Middle Ages many cities had a Calvary mountain with the corresponding "Via Crucis". To demonstrate their faith, the residents chose a headland on the outskirts of the village and a chapel at the top.
