EventssliderTime Out

 

By Jack Wright

GUIDEPOST’s Chris Collins says: “Las Fiestas de San Isidro, in honor of Madrid’s patron saint, San Isidro Labrador, are being celebrated from [10] to 15 of May. The fiestas are considered the most castiza of Madrid’s fiestas. Castiza means pure, genuine, true representative of the caste (casta). These fiestas are the closest to the hearts of the Madrileños.”
