Fallas de San José bonfire festival. Valencia

You won't get bored in Spain because there are so many popular festivities all year round. There is always something interesting going on. It all starts right after Christmas with the parades of the Three Kings, who leave presents for the children (on the eve of 6 January). In February you normally have the colourful Carnival (the most famous ones are those of Cadiz and Santa Cruz de Tenerife). In March you can be amazed by the enormous papier-mâché statues that go up in flames during the Fallas festival in Valencia. Around April you have the solemnity of Easter Week and the merriment of the April Fair. And in summer (when most of the festivities take place in Spain), you can enjoy the San Juan bonfires, the traditional San Fermín bull runs, or the Tomatina tomato festival. These are just a few examples of Spain's most popular festivities, but you can also find other interesting traditions like horse races on the beach (in Sanlúcar de Barrameda), medieval markets, wine harvest festivals or the descent of the Sella River (in Asturias) in a canoe. As you can see below, we offer more than 250 festivities to choose from. Just click on the image or the text that you want in order to find more information about each one of these events.
