THE CARAVACA CROSS:
The Caravaca cross is a double-cross. The origin of this special crucifix took place in the Spanish town of Caravaca in 1232.
According to legend, during the 13th century the city of Caravaca was under Moorish Muslim rule. The rulers destroyed all crosses in the town upon taking over. The Moorish chief held a priest named Chirinos prisoner. The chief ordered Chirinos to perform a mass to satisfy his curiosity of the Christian service. Chirinos told the chief he could not perform the mass, because there was no cross available. The chief accused the priest of lying, at which point, two angels appeared carrying a two-armed cross for the priest's service.
Caravaca was given the title of holy city by the Vatican. This title has only been given to four other cities in the world.
