Day of the Cross, Nerja

The Day of the Cross – Dia de la Cruz – is on Wednesday May 3rd with a total of 15 crosses registered. These can be found in the following streets or places:

Paseo Balcón de Europa, calle Gloria, calle Diputación, calle Antonio Millón, calle Chaparil, calle Nueva, calle Joaquín Herrera, avenida de Pescia, calle Buganvilla, calle Jorge Guillén and in the plaza de la Iglesia in Maro.

Always colourful and a lot of effort goes into not only making the crosses but also decorating the surrounding area. Food and drink is on offer at many of the sites and some are more like mini ‘parties’. Late afternoon to early evening is usually when everything is ready and the celebrations begin.
