SAN ISIDRO MAY 15TH

May

15

Time: FROM 10 AM TO 7 PM
Location: HOTEL LOS ARCOS TERRACE BAR

San Isidro takes place on 15th May. San Isidro (Saint Isidore) is the patron saint of farmers, and many villages celebrate with processions through the fields/streets and a grand fiesta.

The statue of San Isidro resides at the Nerja Caves. However, for San Isidro celebrations, the statue is brought to the town just before the event and then makes its ceremonial journey back to its home in the company of thousands of ‘pilgrims’.

In Nerja, it all starts on the evening of May 14th with a big party at the Nerja Caves, near Maro, which tends to go on until the next morning! There’s music, dancing, (temporary) bars galore and stalls and stands selling food of all types.
