Monday was almost ideal for the annual Romería de San Isidro, a bit of light cloud here and there making it nice and warm rather than oppressively hot as is sometimes the case. Crowds lined the streets, cafe terraces were filled and people came out on their balconies to watch the procession wend its way slowly from the centre of town to the Nerja caves in the village of Maro.

The Romería de San Isidro, one of the most popular and colourful celebrations on the festive calendar, takes place on May 14th and 15th. San Isidro (Saint Isidore) is the patron saint of farmers, and many villages celebrate with processions through the fields/streets and a grand fiesta.
Good to see ‘Breine’ was trying out his new antenna during San Isidro.
Weather-wise, two things can almost be guaranteed. The sun will come out for the Romeria de San Isidro, whatever it was like in the preceeding weeks (in this case rain and cold), and it will be cloudy and wet during the October Feria.
A glorious day for the San Isidro procession and festivities, with everyone getting involved.
