Fiestas By Town

fiesta_in_spain

There are literally hundreds of local festivals in this area of Spain. Whenever you visit there will be something going on somewhere. The Spanish like to celebrate and these events are well attended. They are nearly always 100% family friendly and you will see the local kids out with their families well into the night. The local town hall nearly always provides some free entertainment and often some form of local wine or a dish like paella.
So what are you waiting for?
