Took a drive up to the Benidorm Cross yesterday evening. A long, winding drive in a sweltering 32 degrees brought us within a quarter of a mile of the Cross. The rest was walking. It was worth the effort.
‘At the end of 1961, at the request of Father Salvador Perona, people from Benidorm, in an evangelizing mission in order to redeem the city from its frivolous reputation, carried a
huge cross on their shoulders from San Jaime and Santa Ana church to Sierra Helada. Over the years, the Cross has become another of
Benidorm’s beautiful tourist attractions.’
