ferialogo

Fiestas, ferias, romerías, festivals and other celebrations are part of the Spanish culture and there is invariably something going on somewhere.

Some of the festivals are celebrated all over Spain, such as San Isidro and Semana Santa (Easter or Holy Week), others are regional or are special events celebrated in just one town.

Each town has its Patron Saint, and of course this is cause for celebration.

Fiestas and Ferias in Spain are colourful events with much eating, drinking and dancing as everyone enjoys a family day. Ferias generally last 5 days, sometimes more, not finishing until the early hours of the morning.

Over 3,000 fiestas are celebrated each year in Andalucia alone!
