Narrow, silent, winding streets lead to Santa Cruz Chapel, at the highest point of this neighbourhood where the most famous and spectacular Easter procession begins and ends.
Santa Cruz, they said, was the home of harbourworkers. The mystical air of this place is reflected in its street names, like Carrer San Anton, where there used to be an image of Saint Anton where the neighbourhood girls prayed for a boyfriend.
Apart from the tranquility and breathtaking views, the flower pots are the main stars, decorating not just streets but most facades too.
If you are in Alicante at the beginning of May, you cant miss Cruces de Mayo, its most important celebration. People work all year round on this 3 day festivity.An absolute must!
