Fiesta de San Bartolomé

This rollicking celebration takes place on the final weekend of August or the first weekend of September and is marked by processions, student exhibitions, traditional costumes and folk dancing from all over the continent. In recent years it has even extended overseas and featured musical groups and dance troupes from as far away as China and the USA.

Given all the practicing during the week leading up to the festival, you’d be forgiven for assuming it actually started a week earlier. Booking accommodations for this period is essential.
