Toledo: Fiestas and Folklore

Toledo's perhaps best known festivity is the procession of Corpus Christi, when the splendid 16th century monstrance is taken out of the cathedral. The popular Romería de la Virgen del Valle, a festival of pilgrimship, takes place in May as well.

Among the best known and most interesting festivities in the province are the Fiesta del Olivo (Olives Festival), at the last Sunday of April in the village Mora de Toledo, and the Festival of San Isidro in Talavera, from May, 15th to 18th, with processions and poular dances. Of archaic traditions is the Fiestas de Danzantes y Pecados in Camuñas.

In June there is the nice Fiesta de la Amistad (Festival of Friendship) in Polan, and in November the popular Fiesta de la Rosa de Azafrán in Consuegra.
