On the first Sunday in May, the Romeria de Linares takes place. This is a religious procession, which commemorates the conquest of Cordoba by Ferdinand the Holy, who, as legend has it, brought with him a statue of the Virgin Mary.
The procession starts a few kilometres from Cordoba and carries a large float of the Virgin of Linares through the city.
Do you remember my friend Goldilocks? Well, now she has a blog. She was lucky enough to hear the procession passing through her street yesterday morning and got some fabulous shots of it. Check it out.
