La Fiesta de los Caballos del Vino en Caravaca de la Cruz

La Fiesta de los Caballos del Vino (The Festival of the Wine Horses) in Caravaca de la Cruz (Murcia) is a unique, unusual and passionate celebration.
The celebration takes place on the morning of every May 2nd, the day before the feast of the Cross, when Caravaca becomes the capital of joy, beauty and festive participation. The horses of the Wine begin at dawn with the washing and harnessing of the horse, in more than forty different places of the city. Few spectators, most related to the clubs or family, have the privilege of attending the ceremony.

The parade of the Caballos del Vino begins at 8 in the morning and part of the Plaza Nueva and Plaza del Arco, where previously the Peñas and Moro and Cristiano bands have been concentrated, which precede the multiple horses that take part in the same .

The Wine Horses, together with Moors and Christians, form the Caravaca de la Cruz Festivals held every year from the 1st to the 5th of May in honor of the patron saint of the town, Stma. And Vera Cruz de Caravaca.

Enjoy your visit to Caravaca de la Cruz to visit the “Caballo del Vino” Museum – impressive

Fallas de Valencia 2017 – 15 to 19 of March 2017

Fallas de Valencia 2017Fallas de Valencia 2017, a festival that runs from 15 to 19 March 2017.
But throughout the year many events and celebrations that occur are related to the Fallas of Valencia.
The fallas are also known as “Fiestas Josefinas (feast of Saint Joseph)” which will take place in honor of St. Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters.
Fireworks called “mascletás” are the favorites of the Valencians. They take place between 1 and 19 March 2017 at 14:00 hours at the Town Hall Square of Valencia.
Unlike fireworks in search of visual stimulation, the “mascletás” aim to stimulate the body through rhythmic pirotecnic explosions called “masclets“. Some consider these noises as “music”.
