Summer in Madrid won’t be summer without the fiesta of the Virgin of La Paloma. The feast falls on the 15th of August but as is typically Spanish the celebration lasts days. Thank god for this inexhaustible capacity to have fun without even trying! The focal point of the festivities is the historic barrio of La Latina, presumably Madrid’s most castizo (genuinely Madrileño) district.
