Festivities

Andalucia has a tradition of fiesta. There are few places in Spain where the spirit and energy of a society is expressed in such an exuberant and vivacious manner. There are many charming and picturesque local festivals throughout the year including Semana Santa (Holy Week); a week depicting the death of Christ through procession. The villagers and visitors follow the statues with the sombre sound of the drums and trumpets echoing through the streets. The night processions are beautiful with a never ending line of candles.

 

El Noche Del Vino (Night of the Wine), This is the highlight of the year in Competa for the harvesting of the muscatel grape for the wine. It is celebrated on the 15th August with the main plaza becoming a stage for visiting dancers and musicians from all over Spain. The local families offer 'new' wine from their house to each other and to visitors. There will also be exhibitions of local artists, sculptors and craftspeople.

 

   
In July there is a week of Feria and Fiesta. Dancing and singing and a visiting fair. These festivities continue until dawn for the bravehearted.
