Work of 1888, is one of the four “desenclavos” in Galicia, which portray the descent of the cross. It is situated on a crossroads at the entrance of the village of Vilariño, next to a fountain.

It sits on three tiers and a cubic base, with its upper edges chiselled. The batten is a regular size with squared sections and the edges finished off.
The four-sided capital´s angles have scrolls and underneath them are other ones that look like shells.

This is the only descent or desenclavo we know of in the region, there are similar ones in Eiroa (Noia) and Berrimes (Lousame), which could possibly have been made by the same artist.
