Spring is approaching, and with it in normal circumstances, Tourism in Spain increases considerably.
This year, due to the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic, there will still be quite a few restrictions. However, without a pandemic, the beginning of spring is a very strong season in Spain, tourism increases, flights increase, and the arrivals of thousands of people, the tourist sector, lives at this time, the beginning of its great season in Spain.
The most noteworthy on these dates are:
The “Fallas of Valencia”: festivals that go from March 15 to 19 with a tradition rooted in the Spanish city of Valencia and different towns in the Valencian Community.
Currently, this festival has become a very important tourist attraction, since in addition to being classified as a festival of International Tourist Interest, in November 2016 UNESCO inscribed them on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Holy Week “Semana Santa” in Andalusia
Declared World Heritage by UNESCO, it is the largest and most important event in Andalusia, with centuries of history, popular religiosity that goes out to the streets, images with the scenes of the Passion of the Christ and the popular fervor of the people.
Thousands of tourists from all over the world come to be impressed with the fabulous images, and the great steps, the music, the flowers, the smell or the “costaleros” (people who carry the “Pasos” on their shoulders), impress thousands of people every year.
This year many things have changed and there will be no “Semana Santa” nor Touristic Events, but let’s be positive for next year!
