"Try to visit during San Isidro..." Madrid Favorite Tip by plazacam

Madrid General: 417 reviews and 478 photos


Favorite thing: Try to visit during San Isidro (Patron Saint of Madrid) in May (May 15th is the exact date but the festivities go on all week long). Concerts and cultural events are widespread and the city is truly hopping.

Fondest memory: The photo at left, my first encounter with a 'Chulapa' lady and her traditional San Isidro garb. I did not actually meet them but linited myself to observation from above. The two of them are crossing the Plaza Mayor and I thought this shot was interesting. For more photos on San Isidro, please visit my website at Thanks, Jer...
