Articles about Córdoba and the most important places in the city that you should visit.
There are a lot of things to do in Córdoba , Andalucía has what can best be described as a busy calendar of fiestas and ferias. Many events are rooted firmly in religious tradition, while other festivals are very much centred around Spanish music and the arts.
Some are known the world over, whilst others take place in relative obscurity. What they all have in common is their sheer exuberance and vibrancy. May is usually seen as being the height of the fiesta season, when many of the largest events in the city take place.
There are, however, things to do in Cordoba all through the year, although there is a particularly good choice of cultural offerings during the summer months. The International Film Music Festival in June is followed by the Feria Barriada de El Higuerón each July, the Feria Barriada de Alcolea in August and then the Vela de la Fuensanta every September.
Semana Santa – Holy Week in Cordoba is a solemn occasion. It starts with Palm Sunday and the procession of the Borriquita and ends with the procession of the Risen. Throughout the week, some 35 Brotherhoods parade through the city’s streets. The event attracts thousands of tourists each year.
