The Cruceiro is a stone-carved crucifix monument that can be found in Galicia at crossroads, in church grounds and cemeteries. It was donated more than 20 years ago as a gift from Galicia for the fact that the Galician country team in Munich invited to the traditional Oktoberfest and attended the pageant also a costume group from Galicia.
Cruceiros are in Galicia in places that have been sanctified by the pagan faith, and in places where there are associations of witches and the so-called 'Santa Compaña' (a procession held by the spirits of the deceased and the living who encountered this, brought misfortune and death) suspected. These places should be christianized by setting up the Cruceiros.
