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.

My name is Carly Morris. I was blessed to have been born in one of the most beautiful places on earth, New Zealand. Hailing from Auckland, the City of Sails, I am a writer, listener, language lover (verging on the obsessed!), teacher, baker, big sister, mad foodie and absolute travel bug. I am off on my biggest adventure yet... to live in Spain.
