To honor the Virgen de La Paloma, "patrona popular de los Madrileños": Religious activities, Chotis , Concerts, Shows, Contests. . . A most "castiza" fiesta in the heart of Old Madrid!
The San Isidro as celebrated in 2021 may not be at full throttle but it is close enough. Next year, it will be all systems go. Just keep your fingers crossed!
The heart and soul of the guitar will always be found in Spain, and no electric guitar or country-western style can hold a candle to Granada’s cultural icon
"The essence of Madrid is captured in the annual feast of the Virgin of la Paloma; the combination of culture, history, passion, and pride epitomizes what it means to experience coming here. Joining this celebration, I was no longer an outsider, but just another Madrileña ready to join the party"
Nobody can take the reader from the chotis, so popular in Spain since the 19th century, to “American Idol” in the States today like Ms Foran can !
