Valencia Celebration Of Springtime

Posted on: May 27, 2007

Do you have any upcoming plan for spending your holidays in Spain? So you must have chocked out a plan for where to visit or not. When you go there you are very keen to visit some of the several fiestas, which form the center of attraction. Some of the out of the blue places are described in this article.

1. Sanfermines A visitor going to Spain is all familiar with the World famous event, which in English is known as “Running of the Bulls”. On July 7th of every year in Pamplona, takes place the Festival of San Fermin for a week. Spanish men like to elude the bulls wearing customary white shirt and red sash. In Tudela (July 24th – 28th), Estella (first Saturday in August), Tafalla (August 20th – 25th), and Sanguesa (September 11th – 17th) same event takes place but in smaller dimension.

2. Feria de Abril One must not ignore the Flamenco dancing taking place at Seville every April. In the new form of the festival it is flamenco paradise, complete with sherry wine tasting and Tapas all through the evenings, which originally was a cattle market. During this lively event most of the Running of the Bulls takes place.

3. Semana Santa The priest made the zeal of Christ more comprehensive to the common mass in the Easter weekend in the 16th century. Parishioners chanting and cheering for their respective church, a long, complex procession of people playing out the characters in the story, and thousands of spectators would be seen by the visitors during this time.

4. Las Fallas de San José Visitors will see 10 days of cardboard constructions being burnt to the ground on the last day of the festival fireworks, more of bullfights, and a lot of flamenco dancing and attires during the Valencia celebration of springtime.

5. Ceremonia del Tributo de las tres Vacas “Three Cow Tribute Ceremony” is the English translation of the festival. Every year the town’s dignitaries dress up in medieval gowns on July 13th and can be seen by the visitors; this ceremony dates back to 1375. People of Piedra San Martin are given three cows showing tribute to French inhabitants of the Baretous valley.

6. Travel Spain: Day of Inmaculada From singing traditional song fraternities from all over Spain, to the statue of the Virgin Inmaculada in Seville, which is a late night festivity. Danza de los Seises always happens in the cathedral, it is a dance comprised completely of children who are also dressed in medieval gear next morning on December 7th.
