    Your suggestions sound very convincing. My knowledge of Spanish festivals is limited to La Tomatina in Valencia and the running of the bulls in Pamplona which is where everyone goes, I suppose.

      Yes, those were the only ones I knew about, too. Considering Spain is practically a second home country for so many Scandinavians, I know surprisingly little.

    I went to a few while I was there but none as spectacular as these. I could go for them all.

      Yes, I think I could, too. They all sound so interesting.

    I have always loved that conflicting cultures of Christian and Islamic religions in Spain. They have made for some of the greatest churches, mosques and castles with such a mix of styles and continual conflict throughout history.

    It has got to feel a little special taking part in a play and the festival that is so old.

      It is interesting the Muslim influences in Spain, especially the architecture. I’d definitely like to explore more of southern Spain for that reason.

  4. San Juan is wild and happens all over Spain. Bonfires in plazas, dancers with fire, drummers. Usually an all night affair, one of it’s purposes is to cleanse. However, I think the real purpose is to drink and party!

      Yeah, probably the real purpose behind lots of festivals around the world, that. Lively and fun, though, eh?

    My knowledge of Spanish festivals is shockingly poor even thou I am actually right now in Torrevieja which is just some 50km south of Alicante…. And just trying to figure out how to get to Pamplona in few days :)
