The day of the Cruz de Mayo in Málaga, enjoy and discover this tradition!
Although the day of the Cruz de Mayo, is not the most popular festival in the city of Malaga. Several brotherhoods have been celebrating this tradition in the capital of the Costa del Sol.
Because the month of May begins with the traditional feast of the crosses. Although the Catholic Church unified the feast with the Exaltation of the Cross in the month of September.
In Andalusia, the custom of covering a cross with flowers and celebrating a festival around it is still alive.
