Las Cruces de Mayo

Last weekend seen the famous ´Cruces de Mayo’ (Crosses of May) festival take place in Cordoba. It happens every year and all over the city, crosses adorned with flowers are set up to mark the begininng of May and the festival season which is very important here.

During the three days of the festival, stalls are set up beside them and traditional flamenco was played. There was even a free flamenco concert set up every night. The centre was full of people and tourists, I have never seen the place so lively and happy.

To be honest I dont really know what the actual point of it all is but you cant complain about an excuse for a fiesta and the crosses are also nice to look at.
