    Santa Cruz is the name of the old quarter on the slope of Benacantil mount.

    Small white houses with balconies decorated with flowers crowd together.

    There is a nice chapel (Ermita de la Santa Cruz) on the top of the quarter, close to the ramparts of Santa Barbara Castle.

    On May 3rd, the day of the Holy Cross (Santa Cruz), the quarter celebrates a nice feast. The streets are decorated and crosses are made with flowers.

    This is how Alicantinos call the small old city, built under the protection of the Santa Barbara fortress, and full of narrow, steep lines and colourful buildings.
