But it will be on Friday the 11th when the great typically Madrid party starts in Mojácar. It will be done in style and fun, with live music sessions, which will continue with spectacular fireworks that will illuminate the town and its beautiful beaches.

 

Who was Saint Isidore?

Pilgrimage of Saint Isidore in Mojácar

Saint Isidore (San Isidro), now-a-days patron of Madrid and saint of the farmers, was a humble orphan boy who from a very young age had to work in different trades to get ahead in the Madrid of the time.

Isidro was a humble young man, hardworking and with a great religious commitment, who stood out for his kindness, dedication and help to others. These qualities and his great humanity accompanied him throughout his life, which he dedicated at all times to his work as a farmer, to meditation and to his dedication to God. His miracles were also famous, so after his death, Pope Gregory canonized him as a saint in 1622.

 

The day of San Isidro is the 15th of May, but at our destinations, you can celebrate both the weekends of the 11th and 18th.
