Las Cruces de Mayo - Welcome to May - Spanish style
Just when you thought you had missed your chance to see the parades and processions after Semana Santa, this weekend brings us the lower-keyed Fiesta de Las Cruces (Festival of the Crosses). The day of Las Cruces is technically May 3, but around Spain the festivities will take place all weekend. As the name suggest, the origins of the celebration lies in a mixture of religion and legend, and according to legend dates back to the Roman emperor Constantine, who saw a giant cross in a dream as a way to defeat the enemy army.
Our recommendation for visiting is Andalusia, check out Cordoba which is also preparing for its 2011 Patio Festival.
