Javea Fiestas

Fiestas are at the epicentre of Spanish culture and Javea Fiestas are at the core of this town. The locals are passionate about the Fiestas as they represent Spain and the Spanish culture. Fiestas are performed throughout the entirety of Mainland Spain and surrounding Islands alike. Though they may vary depending on the area you visit, you will be sure to find a Fiesta schedule in your Spanish destination. There are over 15,000 fiestas every year throughout Spain and it is said that even if you attempted to attend more than one a day, you wouldn’t be able to see them all in a single lifetime. Across Spain there is a true passion and enthusiasm for a great party, a celebration and a reason to get together with their friends and family. There truly is a Fiesta for everyone, from Moros y Cristianos (Moors and Christians) to Correfox, there is always something to take part in.
