Colourful festival of the Virgin Mary.

In Spain, the Virgin Mary has many different names according to the different regions. In Madrid, the Almudena Cathedral (Catedral Santa María la Real de la Almudena) celebrates the "Virgin of the Almudena", with the Fiesta de la Almudena every year on the 9th of November.

A morning mass at Plaza Mayor is followed by a long street procession through the city, leading to Almudena Cathedral in Plaza de la Almudena. Devotees bring flowers to the cathedral throughout the day in this charming and traditional festival.
