The council undertakes this work in order to preserve the cultural and artistic heritage of the municipality.

The first phase of works cured all the problems of moisture which had caused a deterioration in the building that hosts one of the most important images in Alhaurin el Grande the Cristo de las Agonías. These new works focus on specific repairs to maintain the good condition of the chapel and are concerned with the ornamental decorative of the building.

The Councillor for Culture, María Rosa Morales, visited the building to supervise the work which included the decoration of the front, where the altar is and which also houses the shrine of Christ.

The councillor reported that the works are "respecting the original design of the altar, although they have added some small details designed to enhance this part of the shrine, which houses the agonies of Christ, in order to give greater prominence to the saint" The edil added that "in parallel to these works other repairs are being made to help keep the good condition and image of the shrine as well as the restructuring of the doors where some glass will be installed to preserve the interior of the temple."

These important improvements according to councillor, María Rosa Morales, "are the result of the interest of this council to preserve our cultural and artistic heritage optimally."

The building is located just outside the village and the agonies of Christ is highly revered with the affection of all Alhaurín and traditionally is worshiped on the occasion of the celebration of the pilgrimage of the municipality.
