    The beautiful town of Caravaca de la Cruz is located to the northwest of the Murcia province. In the houses that extend around the castle there are beautiful examples of the Murcian Renaissance. One of the main features is the castle that rises up above Caravaca’s urban layout (it is of Muslim origin). Its 14 fortified towers are there to safeguard the shrine of the Santísima Vera Cruz which was built in its centre in the 17th century.

    Caravaca de la Cruz is also the fifth city where you can celebrate Holy Year (Jubilee Year) in the Catholic religion, along with Santiago de Compostela, Santo Toribio de Liébana, Rome and Jerusalem. In this regard, in this town Holy Year is celebrated every seven years and one can achieve jubilee, plenary, solemn and universal indulgence. The next Holy Year will be in 2024.

    If you have been to Caravaca during the famous running of the horses you will have marvelled at the fabulous blankets adorning the horses. We visit the museum of fiestas which showcases these along with spectacular Moors and Christian Costumes and ornaments used in the festivities offered in honour of the Holy Vera Cruz, held between the 1st and the 5th of May.
