What’s On in Spain in May …
In Granada and Cordoba it’s the festival of the Cruces de Mayo where large crosses adorn parishes and the locals party in the streets. Cordoba continues its parties with the Fiesta de los Patios, a competition to find the city’s most beautiful flower covered patio. Then shortly afterwards it’s the Feria de Cordoba, a fiesta of flamenco and all things Spanish that now rivals Seville’s April Fair in size. The famous Feria del Caballo, Jerez’s Horse Fair is also this month.
Up in Madrid it’s the world’s largest bullfight festival plus plenty cultural events and parties as Madrileños celebrate San Isidro, the Patron Saint of the capital. Corpus Christi is celebrated all over Spain but it is Toledo where it is most impressive.
