Long Weekend in May 2012
The May 1 that this time is on a Tuesday is a mix of history and festive day
The May 1st is the international day for workers laid down in Paris in the Socialist Workers Congress of the International Second in 1889 and was in honor of the dead and wounded from the revolt of Hayamarket in Chicago, USA in 1886.
Today, because the working conditions of workers have improved this celebration has become a holiday and festivity. Spain organizes several events in honor of this date.
This year, the May 1 is on a Tuesday. Why not celebrate this long weekend in a special way and make a little vacation?
Now that the weather is better , get away for the big cities of Valencia, Granada and Barcelona could be an option or if you prefer less crowded cities but charming, Albacete, Figueras and Gerona are ideal.
