4 ideas for a getaway this May Bank Holiday

Gone are the Easter holidays and the summer ones are still far away; however, we still have some festivities to help us get through these spring months.

The first party to arrive will be the May Bridge. Depending on the Autonomous Community in which you live, the dates may vary. Of course, May 1 is a holiday throughout the country, since it is Workers’ Day.

In the Community of Madrid the bridge will be even longer, since the 2nd is a holiday also because the beginning of the War of Independence is commemorated in that same city on May 2, 1808.

Both a long weekend and a long weekend can be used in the best possible way: traveling. That is why we bring you a few national destinations to help you choose where you will spend these well-deserved days off:

Trujillo Cheese Fair

If you are a cheese lover, read carefully: it is celebrated from April 28 to May 1 in the Extremaduran town of Trujillo. In its main square, stalls are set up where the cheese makers who come to the fair offer tastings of their cheeses.

In addition, there are wine and beer stands to accompany the cheese tapas. Most of the cheese makers who attend this event are farmers who obtain milk from their own animals and make the cheese in an artisanal way, so they are all of a very good quality and if you like any of their products, you can buy it and take it with you to home.

Stone Monastery

It is the perfect getaway for nature lovers. It is a natural park that offers a tour through a spectacular landscape full of waterfalls, lakes, caves and hundred-year-old trees.
