Spain Fiesta - The major Fiestas in Spain

Spain is the nation of "Fiesta". There are festivals all over the country in every city, town and village. The major festivals celebrated in Spain:

There is no better country to visit than Spain if you like to party and live Ia vida loca! It may be the sunshine or their natural exuberance and zest forlife but the Spaniards really know how to let their hair down.

Fiestas are the very essence of Spanish life - they are colourful, vibrant, usually noisy, often chaotic and always great fun. Some events, such as the Pamplona Bull Run and La Tomatina, have become world-famous, whereas some remain very unique and undiscovered.

Fiestas are now more popular than ever, having become major tourist attractions that welcome visitors. Most fiestas are centred on some kind of spectacle where you are often welcome to join in.

With fires, food fights, loud music, parades and dances, fiestas may seem totally chaotic and spontaneous to a visitor’s eye but behind the scenes fiestas are highly organised, often taking months of planning beforehand to prepare for a few days of fun.

The origins of many of the country’s countless fiestas lie in Spain’s strong Catholic background, with events often based around religious feasts honouring local patron saints. The result is that there are over 15,000 fiestas happening every year, so party-going visitors are not going to get bored.
