In the month of May Madrid celebrates the fiestas in honour of San Isidro, the city’s patron saint.
Bullfights play an important role in these celebrations, with a top-level line-up and a fair that lasts some two weeks, with normal bullfights and “rejoneo” (horseback bullfights). Furthermore, the Spanish capital’s most traditional streets come alive with concerts, performances, competitions, street entertainment and open-air parties. On 15 May, the feast of San Isidro itself, there is a procession/pilgrimage and a public lunch.
