The Calvari oratory rises up atop a hill that can be reached either in car or on foot, climbing a staircase with 365 steps. Its façade is Baroque and dates from 1795, although it also includes Mannerist and neoclassical elements as well. Tradition has it that the image of the Virgen del Peu de la Creu (Virgin at the Foot of the Cross), venerated inside the oratory, was found by fishermen in the neighbouring town of Cala de Sant Vicenç. It is a carving that dates from the 14th century. The layout is slightly elliptical and it has a semicircular apse.

In Pollença you can also visit the Roser Vell and Sant Jordi oratories, both dating from the 16th century.
