The poster of the 60th Feria de Pentecôte is designed by Jean-Pierre Formica, and his work can be seen in several places in the city during the feria (and after). One of the places is the famous Hôtel Imperator, where you can see his magnificent sketches and paintings on corrida, matadors and bulls. Entrance to the exhibition is free, and at the same time you can take a look of the interior of the hotel. Exhib running until tomorrow. More info here.

Feria colours

The colourful Souleiado fabrics are hanging from the balconies of Hôtel Imperator (where Picasso, Hemingway, Jean Cocteau and Ava Gardner have stayed in), which is a sign of… Feria finally beginning! Some events started already, first corrida will be held tonight and the bodegas will invite their first customers – it’s party time!
