Culture

Spain’s rich history is self-evident and very distinguished traditions have been maintained in various cultural festivals, religious events or popular “fiestas”.

All year round there are regional celebrations that are not to be missed. To name a few:

The Bullfighting or the “Pamplona bull-running” fiesta, the “Castellers” human towers competitions in the Cataluña region, the “Fallas” fireworks celebration in Valencia or the sacred processions of the “Semana Santa” in Andalucía are just a part of the unique and exciting folklore of Spain.
