El Día de la Cruz (The Day of the Cross)

May 3rd is celebrated each year as El Día de la Cruz. All over the village. people get together to make and decorate large floral crosses, which they then put on display in their neighbourhood or barrio. Musicians and dancers then make their way from cross to cross playing and dancing at each stop, and then partaking of the snacks which are on hand for those who come to admire the handiwork - the local wine, and various traditional, local tit-bits like chorizo, morcilla, tortilla and dulces or sweetmeats. These photos give you a flavour (forgive the pun) of the day.
