The Caravaca cross has a long history dating back to the 14th century in Spain. The cross is considered a good luck symbol. It is said that the original Caravaca cross appeared miraculously in the Spanish town of Caravaca during the 14th century containing a fragment of the True Cross upon which Jesus was crucified.
