All the sad young men . . .

When somebody dies on the road, the nearest available fixed object is used to create a memorial to the dead person, and this is kept up like flowers on a grave. Photos icons and tokens are also used

Decorated telegraph pole near the bridge at Benamargosa

it is the memorial to a young man killed on his quad bike. Fresh cut flowers, photos and a wreath of fresh flowers are replenished at each fiesta and religious festival
