San Isidro: A Festival with Deep Roots

By | 6 May, 2014 | 0 comments

San Isidro MadridConsidered as the patron saint of farmers and although his festival is celebrated in many towns with processions that bless the fields, it’s in Madrid where he is venerated the most, with a festival dedicated to him that is becoming increasingly important.

The saint’s incorrupt body is located in Madrid, the city where he was born in around 1082, in the old cathedral of la Real Colegiata de San Isidro. The visit to his sacred remains is what originated the pilgrimage around the chapel built as a tribute to him, located in Pradera de San Isidro, painted by Goya in a painting with the same name. Every year, the amount of attendants is huge to the point that you need plenty of patience to deal with the large crowd that has gathered there since first thing in the morning. In the afternoon, the procession with images of San Isidro and Santa María de la Cabeza take place from the Colegiata de San Isidro to the district of La Latina and the Plaza Mayor, a return route that ends with the hymns of the Virgin of the Almudena and of San Isidro. read full article
