To celebrate the annual “Verbena de la Paloma” festival which takes place on the 15th August, the inhabitants of Madrid, madrileños, wear traditional clothes. Men dress in traditional costumes called “chulapos” and women wear the popular “Mantón de Manila.” The streets are decorated with coloured lamps and people dance a traditional dance called “chotis.” The open-air dances take place mainly in La Latina, Lavapiés and Vistillas quarters.
