Celebrate the San Isidro Fair in your new home

San Isidro Fair is one of the most beautiful celebrations that can be enjoyed in Madrid. Regardless of whether you are fond of bullfighting or not, the agenda of activities includes many options to enjoy a different and extremely fulfilling time through the centre of the Spanish capital. It goes without saying that the best way to avoid missing out on this festivity is to invest in some of the notable properties that make up the Engel & Völkers' catalogue. Before presenting some of these properties, let us briefly explain the history of this popular fair. 

The origin of the fair dates back to a supposed miraculous episode that took place in Madrid during a period of heavy drought. According to tradition, San Isidro Labrador solved the water shortage problem by hitting a rock with his cane and bringing forth a huge spring. In addition to making this saint the patron saint of Madrid, a hermitage was erected in his honour and is today in the neighbourhood of Carabanchel. The celebrations begin around 15th May, which is the day this miracle is commemorated.

It should be noted that the waters that continue to flow from the spring are considered to be medicinal, so much so that two of the most powerful kings of Spain, Carlos I and his son Felipe II, healed from their respective diseases by drinking it. the city. It is stories like these that contributed the devotion for the saint and led to the realisation of periodical pilgrimages to the hermitage. Since the 20th century, the religious centres added this important day to the calendar and it continues to be celebrated to this day, as in the case of bullfights. 

If you want to buy a home in Madrid but still have not found the ideal property, we can help you with two examples that are very close to Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas. The first one is an apartment with its own garage in the Salamanca district, which is a cosy and functional property with a modern touch. It should be noted that this is a very reasonably priced property considering its privileged location.

Also in the neighbourhood of Guindalera (in the same district as the previous apartment) is the second option to buy a property in Madrid. In this case, we want to point out the spaciousness of the property, its brightness, and its luxury decor as the main predominant features. Almost 180 sqm of living space in the centre of Madrid, it comes with four bedrooms and three bathrooms among others.
