At the end of May Cordoba celebrates the Fair in honour of Nuestra Señora de la Salud (Our Lady of Health).
The fiesta has a marked Andalusian flavour. There are “casetas” (marquees with food, drink and music) erected at the city’s fair ground, most of which are open to the general public. The thoroughfare and the surrounding streets fill with horse-drawn carriages, flamenco dress, “Sevillana” music and wine. The origins of the fair go back to the old livestock market – this market is now held on the outskirts of the city. During the period of the fair there are various bullfights that take place in the Los Califas Bullring.
