CITY OF FLOWERS

The historic centre of Córdoba has no basins. Its cobblestones just let some climbing plant grow and splash the immaculate white of the houses. But when May comes, the streets of Cordoba bloom. Its squares are filled with colour and the smell of spring floods every corner, every yard. The Cordovan May fills the streets of the city with flowers and its people with happiness. Spring starts here with the Battle of Flowers, a procession of floats through the city on the last Sunday of April. Its occupants throw carnations at the people and they throw them back.

Immediately after, the floats are replaced by crosses. Huge flower crosses three meters high that are placed in the main squares of the city. This time is ideal to enjoy the Cordoba’s gastronomy. In May, the bars go out into the streets and offer drinks and tapas for people to enjoy the crosses with a full stomach.

After the second fortnight, the wineries of Cordoba join the party at The Tasting, the Cordovan wine fair. The aromas of a Pedro Ximenez, the tannins of a glass of sherry, or the nuances of a glass of Amontillado are paired with the smell of geraniums now multiplying on the white walls of Cordoba. The Patios Fair explodes in mid-May in Cordoba. This competition makes individuals open the doors to their houses to allow Cordoba tourists admire the goodness of their yards. And to see out the month of flowers, the famous Feria de Córdoba starts. A real festive tour de force showing that few cities in the world extol the spring as this ancient city does.
