Submitted by: Owners Direct Holiday Rentals Ltd
(OPENPRESS) March 30, 2011 -- The festive season strides onto the center stage in Spain with the onset of spring. It's a great time to plan your holiday around the beautiful land of Spain and experience traditional Spanish culture and festivities. Spain is known the world over for its music, dance and fiestas and to really understand why, you need to be there.
Las Fallas is one of the most extraordinary fiestas in Spain. It is celebrated in Valencia Province. Even though the most dramatic celebrations take place in Valencia city itself, even the small towns, like the town of Gandia have a remarkable Las Fallas and the small town can make the celebrations even more enjoyable. Although the festival is already on, it culminates in a rousing finale, from 15th - 19th of March. There is plenty of time still to book a flight to Spain and enjoy a villa in Spain amidst the festive atmosphere. This is a fiesta not to be missed on any account as its one of the most fun and crazy events ever.
If that sounds too tame, then think about the bullfight festival. Bullfighting is part of Spanish cultural history, and the San Isidro bullfight festival has bullfights running every day for twenty days in Madrid during May or June. The atmosphere is not to be missed and it is a visual spectacle that reveals another side of Spanish culture. Combine this with a trip to the Royal Palace, the official residence of the King of Spain, and imbibe centuries of culture and history among its masterpieces, weaponry and tapestry.
Festivals in Spain also mean music and dance to beat of the Flamenco, which last year was declared by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible History of Humanity. If that sounds like a mouthful, remember that the origins of Flamenco go so far back to classical times that its origins are unclear. The Andalusian region is the birthplace of the Flamenco but it can be experienced anywhere, from festivals in Jerez and Seville in Andalusia to theatrical shows and performances in Madrid.
Spain is a country of rich culture and a glorious past. A holiday in Spain if combined with a traditional fiesta, carnival or festival celebration gives you the best of both worlds and lets you see Spain in its full splendor.
