On the 3rd of May, Dia de la Cruz (Day of the Cross) is celebrated in many towns and villages in Andalucia.
In Loja The children of the town created decorative crosses and gather in the Plaza de la Constitucion.
They then carry their crosses through the Town collecting money for charity and end up in the Peña de Flamenca for a drink and sandwich. This is another noisy and colourful event typical of Southern Spain.
Izzy and Ellie, our granddaughters on holiday, looked on from a doorstep ice cream in hand.
