#ThursdayDoors Temporary Doors May Fair #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  linking up on Norm’s blog here.

May is a very festive and merry month in Cordoba, Andalusia, where I live. At the moment the city is celebrating the Annual May Fair.

All of the doors are temporary, mostly plywood doors, highly decorated, although others, at least look like real doors, but next Monday, they’ll all be dismantled until next year.

The main door into the Fair Ground is a reproduction of the Mosque-Cathedral, an emblematic, historic moment in Cordoba.

These three doors lead to three of the temporary bars built for the occasion.

The fairgoers walk along the makeshift streets, some wear typical gipsy dresses and dance ‘Sevillanas’, most people pop into the temporary bars to eat tapas, drink white wine and dance to whatever lively music is playing.

There are some more photos in my previous post.

More information about the May Fair in Cordoba here.

#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.

More information about the May festivities in Cordoba here.

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.
