#ThursdayDoors May Crosses and Doors in Cordoba, Spain
Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing it, between Thursday morning and Saturday noon and linking up on Norm’s blog here.
May is a very festive and merry month in Cordoba, Andalusia, where I live. Last weekend the city celebrated the Festival of the May Crosses.
Crosses decorated with spring flowers are set up around the city, usually near churches, as we can see in this church door in the background.
Some of the doors are built especially for the cross, as in this case. After the three-day festival it is removed, along with the wall and the potted plants.
Although the crosses are admired for their beauty, there’s always a stand with some wine, beer and tapas nearby to celebrate the festivity, as you can see on the left of the cross.
Next week I’ll show you some of the doors to the world-famous Patios Festival, which is a competition for the prettiest courtyard in the city.
