Fiestas de La Paloma
If you’re planning to be in Madrid around 11 to 15 of August, you can´t miss La Paloma festivities, in La Latina neighbourhood, one of the oldest in Madrid.
You will enjoy many open air free activities, such as concerts. We specially recommend Raimundo Amador show on 15th August at 22:30 in Plaza de las Vistillas.
15th August is a bank holiday and a lot of cities and town all around Spain celebrate their festivities. These kind of popular festivities typically take place during the summer season in every town in Spain, from the smallest ones to the big cities. In Madrid, we like saying that our city is somehow like a little town, a city full of people that still knows its roots and preserves traditions and popular festivities. This is because most of Madrilenians came to Madrid in the 60’s and 70’s from all around the country and so they contribute to Madrid’s festivities with their idiosyncrasy.
