There will be a total of 13 crosses in tomorrow’s Dia de la Cruz (Day of the Cross) in different places in Nerja and Maro. These brightly decorated crosses will be the focal points for street parties throughout the afternoon with music and dancing at the different locations.

There will be three crosses in Maro, all in calle San Miguel – the first will be in the Hogar y Centro Social, the second in the Centro Municipal de Usos Múltiples and the third will be next to the Playa Maro hotel.

In Nerja the crosses will be in the following locations; Calle Jorge Guillén (next to bloque 10) – La Asociación de Mujeres Fuente del Badén, de la Barriada de los Poetas. The children from Narixa school will have a cross made largely from recycled materials, such as plastic bottles. Residents from La Maquinilla will have their cross in calle Joaquín Herrera and there will also be a cross in Calle Brasil.

Calle Pintada in the centre of the old town will have two crosses – one at the top part of the pedestrianised area (created by the businesses in that area) and the second by the brothers Arce in the small passageway that runs from Calle Pintada to Plaza de España, near to the bottom of the street.

Calle Diputación will have two crosses close to each other – one created by the members of the Centro de Participación Activa and the other by the peña flamenca “La Soleá”. The peña Nerjeña will have their cross at their premises in calle Chaparil.

This year’s cross at the Balcon de Europa will be by the Residents Association from the barriada de La Protegidas.

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 all the crosses in their splendour.
