The platform is currently buried. The pedestal has an octagonal shape representing skulls and crossed tibias symbolising the Original Sin from which humanity is redeemed by the sacrifice of Christ's Passion. The pole, which is circular in cross-section, is decorated with grooves; the pedestal is quadrangular and framed. The capital, which is cylindrical in section, has a smooth circular astragal, an abacus with straight sides and a crown of scrolls and flowers.

The Cross, quadrangular in section, has arms with scotia and flowered tops. On the obverse side, Christ Crucified is represented with three nails, with his head leaning to the right. His open hands show the nails of the Passion. The head is girded with a crown of thorns. The purity handkerchief is tied to the right. –The cross is crowned with a cartouche with the inscription INRI ("Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews").

On the back, the theme of the Pieta, in a rhomboid composition, is sculpted on a base of an angel with wings.
