Festivals are part of the spanish culture and there are a lot that are celebrated during the year, not only for the happiness of the citizens but also for foreigners and tourists, a good way to show its cultures and traditions.
The local festival is not dedicated to a neighborhood like the traditional one called festa major although they are celebrated in a particular area and this area is situated in a district.
