Kurutziaga Cross Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Standing in front of a Jesuit church, this unusual cross is carved on both sides (Paradise, Adam and Eve, the 12 Apostles). Erected as an act of atonement after a heretical episode in 1442 when Franciscan friar Alonso de Mella's unorthodox preaching drew a considerable number of followers (around 100 were burnt as witches in 1444 on the site where the cross now stands).
