May - Caballos del Vino (Running of the Wine Horses) Caravaca
Caballos del Vino or the Running of the Wine Horses is held on the 2nd May every year in Caravaca de la Cruz inland Murcia. Your Euro Tour Guide has chosen this promotional video by Bravo Studios to highlight this great fiesta.
In the video you'll see panoramic images of this historic inland town, the impressive Sanctuary de la Cruz where the race takes place, traditional dress worn by the locals and participants, and of course the beautiful horses dressed in their traditional cloaks. The main parade introduces all the runners with their horses proudly accompanied by their loyal, passionate supporters all singing and dancing along to the beat of their own bands! The Moors and Christians follow before the race begins. The locals of Caravaca really welcome you to share this, their special day.
