Amazing how many crosses there are along The Way. And no objections to them! Unfortunately we did not see one Protestant church the entire way. I know they are out there - we spent a morning with the head of the Evangelical Free Church in Spain. But they are few and far between.
According to a February 2013 study by the Spanish Center of Sociological Research about 70.5% of Spainiards self-identify as Catholics. However, most Spainiards (especially the younger) choose to ignor the Catholic teachings in morals, politics or sexuality, and do not attend Mass regularly.
It was interesting to note that most crosses are not crucifixes...most are simple and plain.
