Over the first days of May, the Andalusian cultural capitals of Granada and Córdoba celebrate the Festival of Crosses.

The crosses themselves are king. Decorated with local flowers, the crosses adorn homes, squares and gardens. The crosses in turn become focal points for singing, dancing and, of course, drinking.

Scheduled from the May 1 to May 3, the festival is your best chance to see Granada—especially the neighborhoods of Albaicín and El Realejo—before the unbearable heat of the city’s summer sets in.
