It is located above Horná Roveň, part of Štiavnické Bane. It was built in the middle of the 18th century and it consists of the seven stations of the cross.

The seventh station is located on the hill and it is shaped as three crosses. Under the crosses are statues of the Virgin Mary and Saint John.

The calvary is lined by an old linden avenue planted decades ago on an originally treeless hill.
