This is an expansion of the southern end of Victoria Street, creating an open space opposite the main façade of the Convent of Our Lady of Candles.
Four historical crosses, situated at the town’s entrances, have been preserved for centuries. They are outstanding examples of traditional architecture, both for their location and history.
They can be seen at El Ventorro Street and La Marisma Street, among other places.
This festival is known as “Las Cruces de Mayo” or “Las Cruces “. Some songs add, “Cruz de Mayo, la fiesta de las mujeres...” (May Cross, women’s festival) to highlight the important role women play in this festival. Although the main symbol is a cross, the church does not have a presence in this secular festival.
