Our first fiesta of the year !

20160502_113753

With our new neighbours and now friends Kay and Mike, we went to the ‘Los Caballos del Vino’ fiesta in Caravaca. Fantastic, colourful and truly Spanish! Apparently, 700 years ago, the Knights Templar ran up the hill to the Christians, as the city was under siege by Moorish armies. Trying to find uncontaminated water, they could only find wine! At the fiesta, 59 decorated horses are timed galloping up the now famous hill to the castle with four runners hanging off the horse.

Next stop…….Jauro fiesta!!
