Antequera : Correr La Vega : 13/04/17

When : 13/04/17 to 14/04/17

Where : Antequera, Málaga, Spain

What : Correr la Vega

The Malaga city of Antequera, located at the main crossroads of Andalusia and known as “the heart” of the autonomous community, has been and is a must for travelers and travelers of all time. Its magnificent monumental complex is the result of its historical past, and is reflected in more than fifty buildings of religious and civil architecture dating from the Bronze Age to the 18th century.

One of the elements that identifies its Holy Week is the “Correr la Vega”, a long-awaited tradition both for its inhabitants and for the numerous tourists that are approaching at that time to the town and whose origin, apparently, is due to an ancient Tradition that was to take the images to the highest point of the city to bless the lands of La Vega de Antequera.

On Thursdays and Fridays, at the end of the procession, the “brothers” of the cofradías who process those days, with the exception of La Soledad, take the thrones marching to the beginning of a slope or hill and, with The bell warning, start a very emotional race carrying the thrones to where the fields of la Vega are to be seen, so they can be blessed.

May Crosses Festival in Spain 2015 : Colour and Faith under the Sun

May Crosses Festival of Spain (Cruces de Mayo) in Cordoba and Granada 2015

 

 

The Festival of the May Crosses (Cruces de Mayo) is celebrated throughout Andalucia though it is in Cordoba and Granada where the most impressive displays are on show. If you have to choose one then go to Cordoba. The festival consists of the construction of large crosses made of beautiful flowers in many of the city’s main squares.

In the true spirit of Spanish fiestas a temporary bar is built in the same square as the cross. This is where the locals congregate each evening for a good few drinks and tapas which inevitably leads to spontaneous flamenco style dancing into the early hours.

The celebration takes place during the first few days of May with the first weekend tending to be the busiest when visitors from all over Spain arrive to join in the party. The actual crosses which are around three metres high are made by the people of the neighbourhood and the local town council runs a competition to find the best cross (Concurso de los Cruces de Mayo). In Cordoba alone there are some eighty crosses to choose from.

In Cordoba some of the best neighbourhoods to head for are San Basilio, Santa Marina and San Augustin whilst in Granada it’s the Albaicín and the ‘barrio’ of El Realejo where the best crosses and most merriment is to be found.

The temporary bars generate a good income during these few days which is used by local brotherhoods (cofradías) and community groups to finance various local festivals including Holy Week (Semana Santa) and the Cordoba Fair (Feria de Cordoba).

This is a typical Spanish fiesta you shouldnt miss !
