Day of the cross`

 

If you have spotted floral crosses popping up all over the island and wondered why – here’s the answer – today is Día de la Cruz, day of the cross.

Many of Adeje’s villages have been busy making these delightful crosses, with resident associations working to decorate the crosses as they do every year.  According to the councillor for artistic heritage, Juan Desiderio Afonso Ruiz, “this is a very old tradition which we have revived in recent years thanks mainly to the enthusiasm and participation of the different resident associations around the borough, and we in the council have been delighted to work with them, donating the wooden bases and helping with the material needed for the decoration.”

This year 20 crosses have been made in the borough – in Los Olivos, La Postura, El Galeón, Las Nieves, Los Menores, Taucho, la Hoya and Tijoco, La Caleta, La Concepción and Tijoco Alto, Armeñime, El Puertito and in  Fañabé
