Spring in Spain [Mar 2017]

  • Post Category:Spain

Spain is famous for its unique and crazy street festivals to welcome spring! Las Fallas Festival 2017 will take place in Valencia on 12-19 March to bid farewell to the cold winter by building giant puppets and then burning them to the ground. There are spectacular fireworks, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.

From March to April expect the streets to be scented with the smell of sweet orange blossoms flower throughout South of Spain especially in Sevilla with the annual April Fair “La Feria de Abril” from 30 April to 7 May. Córdoba Festival of the Cross and flowered courtyards will also be celebrated in the first two weeks in May. During Easter on 10-16 April, you may eat torrijas, a piece of bread soaked in wine then covered with battered egg and fried in olive oil and served powdered with cinnamon, sugar or drizzled with honey.
