  16. Task 1:
    Semana Santa
    The Fallas of Valencia
    The August Fair in Malaga
    San Fermin
    Las Fallas in Valencia
    La Tomatina
    Seville’s most iconic celebration, the annual April Fair, is a colorful extravaganza of flamenco, horses, and sherry. Think of it as everything Andalusia is famous for packed into one epic week. Spain’s colorful, lively and passionate culture draws millions of visitors every year, all of whom are eager to experience this fun and vibrant country for themselves. Without a doubt, there’s no better time to experience local culture at its best than during one of the myriad traditional festivals in Spain throughout the year. Each festival has a completely unique vibe, with unforgettable traditions and customs that make it unlike any other celebration in the world. Be sure to try and experience one of these unforgettable traditional festivals in Spain on your next trip. You may have heard of Semana Santa—Holy Week—but you’ve probably never seen it celebrated on the Spanish level before. Throughout many parts of Spain, elaborate processions take to the streets every day throughout the week leading up to Easter as members of local parishes and religious brotherhoods parade ornate floats depicting Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary throughout the city.
    These processions have been taking place throughout Spain for centuries, and look much the same as they did hundreds of years ago. The elaborate floats, traditional costumes, and somber music played by live bands make for an Easter celebration unlike any other.
    You can catch Semana Santa processions in many cities throughout Spain, but Seville and Malaga are home to some of the most famous. Don’t underestimate the celebrations in Castilla y León, either—the cities of Valladolid and León also host incredible processions. A controversial yet popular festival that draws hundreds of foolhardy souls and hundreds more eager spectators, Pamplona’s Bull Run might just be the most action-packed traditional festival in Spain.

    The bull runs are actually part of a larger local festival known as San Fermín, taking place in the northern city of Pamplona for a week in early July. Each morning throughout the duration of the festival, participants and bulls take to the streets in a nail-biting race to the bull ring, where a bullfight will take place later in the day.
    The first official documented celebration of San Fermín took place in 1591, and was supposedly a much more low-key affair compared to the raucous celebration we know it as today. Although the rest of the festival is full of unique local traditions, the bull run itself is dangerous and considered by many to be unethical. Not everyone can say they’ve taken part in the world’s biggest food fight. Except for the thousands of people who take to the streets of the tiny town of Buñol, near Valencia, to do so every year. The food of choice at La Tomatina is, unsurprisingly, tomatoes. Messy? Yes. Unforgettably fun? Also yes!
    Sources vary when it comes to the origins of the Tomatina, but the festival’s official website claims it all started in 1945, when a disruption during a parade resulted in spectators and participants throwing tomatoes from a nearby fruit stand at each other. The tradition caught on, and now every year on the last Wednesday in August, Buñol transforms from a sleepy village into party central.
