Photographer's Note

The Loma de la Cruz rises just to 261 meters above sea level, to the North of Holguin City in Cuba, obligatory stop for visitors and noctambulants' refuge and artists.
The Loma de la Cruz is a small elevation, although great in history and beautiful legends.
The Loma de la Cruz takes its name of a wooden cross that exists in its summit, protective symbol for many people, deposit of promises or ornament original for others.
The first cross was placed in 1790, and it was gone up by the friar Francisco Antonio de Alegrķa, prior of the Franciscan community of Holguin. Starting from that moment it left of being recognizes like "Bayado Hill" to take its current name: The Loma de la Cruz.
