In the center of the Holy Cross, from its view, there are hundreds of crosses that on roads, facades, windows, interiors of houses, courtyards and chapels, are adorned with the finest flowers, candles and lights that structure beautiful altars. A tradition that becomes stronger every year, inheriting customs from younger generations.

In recent years, there are many neighbors who adorn their crosses in a public way and are exposed in windows, hallways and doors, in both streets. We must not forget that the party extends throughout the municipal geography, counting more than three hundred crosses throughout the town, which are decorated for this day.

Point and apart deserve the fires in honor of the Holy Cross. The story ate ...
