Nerja’s Day Of The Cross To Feature 12 Different Crosses

Latest News Friday 2nd of May 2014

Nerja’s councillor for Popular Traditions, Sandra Jimena, has announced that there will be a total of 12 crosses in Nerja and Maro for Saturday’s (May 3rd 2014) Dia de la Cruz (Day of the Cross).

Individual streets and residents associations raise money for the event and secretly design floral displays in the shape of crosses which are then proudly displayed on the day of the cross. There are prizes for the best design, and some localities of the town never fail to win.

Maps showing the locations of all the crosses are usually available from the tourist information office on the Balcon de Europa and visitors are invited to take a tour around the town to see the crosses in all their splendour.

There will be two crosses in Maro, both in Calle San Miguel, with entertainment by the Christian dance group.

In Nerja the crosses will be in the following locations; Calle Jorge Guillén (next to bloque 10) by La Asociación de Mujeres Fuente del Badén, de la Barriada de los Poetas. Nearby the nuns and neighbours of the residence of the Hermanas del Buen Samaritano will have a cross.
