capilla


Explanation:
This is what I found.
templete-templecillo. Applied to architectural ornaments in form of a temple.
templecillo-A small temple.

Adosado a las últimas casas de la calle del mismo nombre, es una construcción singular, capilla votiva de origen y fin no conocido, que el pueblo considera capilla expiatoria, paso previo de los que marchaban al patíbulo.

Su carácter ciudadano es indudable y responde al tipo de capilla votiva sin altar, siendo más original las columnas jónicas sobre alto pedestal, a las que se adosan cuatro extraños seres, los del interior transformados en hombres pájaros sujetos a las columnas por una recia soga.

Hope this helps.

Bye

If this still refers to the Intercambiador de la Moncloa, the


Explanation:
"templete" is the "station access" on the street level to the northwest of the Ministerio del Aire (Plaza de la Moncloa, relatively centered), which is too big to be a kiosk (some 10 x 10 x 1.9 metres). Its a flat-topped structure that serves as access to the escalators leading to the interurban bus terminal and the tube station. All around it are the terminus bus stops of several city lines.
