On 9 November the Madrileños celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of the Almudena, their patron saint. It was a lovely day, cool, crisp, and sunny. Typical of Madrid in the early Fall. The air was fittingly festive. The weather couldn’t be better; you’d think the Mother of Jesus Christ had asked it of her Son. There were the traditional procession, the High Mass, people joining in the festivities. They feasted on the "Crown of Almudena".

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.
