SEMANA SANTA

Holy Week in Cabra has been declared of National Tourist Interest. It is distinguished by a spectacular Easter Sunday, during which 26 cofradias carry out the Stations of the Cross around the town.

CRUZ de MAYO (1ST TO 3RD MAY)

The courtyards and crosses of El Cerro, the old quarter, are be-decked with flowers, vivid against the sparkling white of the houses. Competitions take place to judge the best patio.

CABRA GYPSY FESTIVAL

The "Romería Nacional de los Gitanos", or National Gypsy Pilgrimage" traditionally takes place the third Sunday in June and attracts not only gypsies, but also "payos" (non-gypsies). In fact, this event which was founded in 1969 by Jose Córdoba Reyes, draws participants from across Andalucia, Spain and even beyond national borders with the aim of both uniting gypsy communities and bridging the gap between gypsies and non-gypsies.
