If there is one thing that really defines the very essence of Spain, it would be its “Fiestas” (Festivities). Filled with colorful and traditional foods, the games and shows will surely dazzle you. The excitement and joy of Spain can be felt from north to south or east to west.
La Tomatina is a unique and “tasty” tomato fight that takes place in Augusto Buñol, a small Valencian village. This traditional event promises to be an unforgettable experience. The San Fermin festival in July set in Pamplona with its narrow and confined streets is host to a dramatic bull run that spreads over a 1 kilometer rout through the city. Valencia’s famous Fallas takes place in March and is a festival of International tourist Interest. It exhibits the spectacular burlesque monuments that are made by locals before they are burned in the streets in a spectacular showdown. The April Fair in Seville; an explosion of color and flamenco music are some of the most emblematic icons of this famous event.
Besides music and traditions, food is the essential part of any truly Spanish party. Paella, ham, fresh fish, sausage and the ever-present and delicious olive oil are some of the delights that leave their mark on your palate.
