Call for Entries: May Crosses Route Competition

Mayor Óscar Medina and Councillor Salvador Escudero unveiled the event’s poster, announcing its scheduled dates from May 2 to May 4, covering various streets in the town. Last year saw over ten crosses and altars displayed by different groups and associations, a number expected to increase this year.
