Estepona celebrates the May spring festival on Saturday 5 May with its annual Cruces de Mayo (May Crosses) competition which sees local residents and religious brotherhoods decorating their neighbourhood with crosses, spring flowers, etc.
The ‘Crosses’ are visited by a panel of judges, and various prizes awarded, and they make a great spectacle for visitors and locals alike.
This year ‘Crosses’ can be found in Estepona’s historic old town in: Plaza Marqués de Valterra, Plaza Pozo Prado, Jardín de los Poetas Andaluces, Calle Vera-Cruz, Plaza Juan Bazán, Plaza Begines, Plaza del Rocío, Avda. Mar y Sierra, 10, Behind the Casa Hermandad del Amor.
The crosses are at their best from 12 noon, and there is often music and dancing to add to the atmosphere.
