Hermitage of Santa Cruz

The Hermitage of Santa Cruz is located on the hillside of Mount Benacantil, in the singular and picturesque Santa Cruz neighbourhood. It dates back to the last third of the eighteenth century.

It is a small rectangular building. The Santa Cruz procession celebrated on Holy Wednesday leaves from this spot. Costaleros descend carrying four religious processional floats through the steep and narrow streets of Alicante’s old town.
