The Fiesta de San Isidro commemorates the patron saint of Madrid, San Isidro. It’s the highlight on the city’s springtime calendar. Each year, the festival starts with a procession of giants and cabezudos. Then, an opening speech in the Plaza Mayor.
Over the next few days the city becomes a festive riot of Latin culture. 50+ music, theatre and dance concerts take place in indoor venues and al fresco locations throughout Madrid.
