Fiestas & Festivals
Local fiestas are generally held around the same time each year, however the exact dates will vary slightly depending on when they fall so it always wise to check the dates in advance.
Agua y del Jamón
Lanjarón, home to the famous natural springs of the Alpujarras, in the province of Granada, adds an unusual twist to their annual fiesta with a Water and Ham Festival.
La Virgen del Carmen
During the evening of the 16th July, in the coastal towns throughout Spain, a church service is held to honour La Virgen del Carmen, the protectress of fishermen.
This 500 year old festival, held during the first week of September in Baza, in the north of Granada, is one of the more bizarre festivals celebrated in Spain each year.
