Festivities and events in Castile-León

We have chosen for you some events not to be missed in Castile-León. Do you want to experience the solemnity of Easter Week? You can do so in any of Spain's provinces, but especially in Valladolid, Zamora, León, Ávila, Palencia and Salamanca, where this religious festivity is considered to be of International Tourist Interest.  

More ideas: in Medina del Campo you can travel in time to discover the food and way of life of the 15th and 16th centuries, in its Renaissance Week, or go to the Sanabria International Kayaking Regatta and discover the wonders of an incredibly beautiful nature reserve. And it doesn't end there, because Castile-León also hosts many international events related to the arts, like the Valladolid International Film Festival (Seminci), the “Titirimundi” International Puppet Theatre Festival, and the FIS International Festival in Segovia. And you can choose from pop and rock at the Purple Weekend Festival (León) to electronic music and multimedia theatre at the Castile-León International Art Festival (Salamanca). Why not take a look?
