Friday 3 May: Cruces de Mayo

The May Crosses Festival celebrated in Andalucia, Spain, is a fascinating historical festival. As legend has it, St Constantine's mother, St Helen, is the founder of this festival, which shows special respect for the cross upon which Jesus was crucified. The festival consists of the construction of large crosses made of beautiful flowers in many of the city’s main squares and of course a full on party atmosphere. Join us as we bring a little bit of the festivities to YSJ.

Save your place here.
