Fiestas de Mayo (May Festivities)

Declared of International Tourist Interest

In spring, Caravaca is decorated to welcome its big days. Declared of International Tourist Interest, Fiestas de Mayo is worldwide known because of its one-of-a-kind “extraordinary and passionate” character. These days, full of emotions, the people from Caravaca and visitants share passions and joy, glorifying the Santisima y Vera Cross. They officially take place from May 1st to the 5th (although there are one day festivities that take place on March). The Holy Cross is joined during those days with the festivity of the Wine Horses (Caballos del Vino), Moors and Christians (moros y cristianos) that celebrates the city traditions.

Glorification of the Cross

At the end of summer, from September 10th to 14th, the acts of the Glorification of the Cross take place. They have religious connotations and Quinario de la Exaltación is the main one. Hundreds of believers go to the Sanctuary to venerate the Sacred Relic, being those days as important as the ones on May in the context of Christian faith.

Fiesta of the Folk Dancers

Declared of National Tourist Interest

It is held in the borough of Barranda on the last Sunday of January. It is a very interesting Cuadrillas festival where tradicional folklore is performed: animeras, pardicas, jotas, etc. (folk dance and music). This fiesta started in 1979 following to the Fiesta de la Candelaria, the Saint Patroness of Baranda. This fiesta has a very personal identity and a great projection, being the first and most ancient festival of traditional music of Spain. As it was the major fiesta of this kind in this district, region and Spain, it meant a regeneration of many folk dance groups that had virtually disappeared.
