23 04 2007
No city knows how to celebrate the advent of May like Cordoba.
The Fiesta of the May Crosses takes place from April 28th to May 1st every year and is a celebration of the coming of summer that is filled with colour and energy.
All over the Cordoba crosses made from beautiful blooms of every hue are prominently displayed on rooftops and windowsills.
The townspeople compete fiercely with each other to come up with the most creative and colourful designs.
Neighbourhoods like San Augustin, San Basilio and Santa Marina become whirlwinds of dancing, singing, drinking and merriment.
Spaniards generally stay up late on warm nights and it is in the evenings that the party really gets under way.
Located in the beautiful Andalucia region of Spain, Cordoba is an ancient city full of architectural and cultural delights.
Andalucia boasts a beautiful coastline with long beaches and paradisiacal weather nearly year round.
