The May Crosses of Cordoba

The May Crosses of Cordoba


At the beginning of May, the tradition of the May Crosses follows a street parade called "the Battle of the Flowers" in which floats decorated with flowers are driven though the city to welcome the coming of spring.

In the May Crosses, huge crosses decorated with flowers, plants in pots and manila shawls, are put up in courtyards and squares, and the neighbourhood associations and local clubs set up a bar serving traditional tapas and drinks to the visitors. Traditional Sevillanas music is played and dance shows are performed by night.

To get the perfect image of Cordoba in May, just stroll round the districts of San Basilio, San Andrés, Santa Marina, San Agustín and the city centre during the May Crosses festival.
