Zaragoza: Fiestas and Folklore

Zaragoza's most famous festival is Fiestas del Pilar in October, a celebration in the honour of the town's patroness "Virgen del Pilar". This festival showcases the folkloristic customs of the region Aragón, and is very attractive for the visitor.

"Fiestas de Primavera" in May celebrate the beginning of springtime. Directly after this festival takes place a nationally important exposition of paintings and sculptures.

Among the most attractive folkloristical events in the province are: Corpus Christi in Daroca, La Vendimia (Thanksgiving) in Cariñena, Festival de la Fruta in Calatayud and Festival de la Aceituna in Caspe.

But perhaps most impressive are the Batallas de Moros y Cristianos, the "Fights between Christians and Moors": those are theaters that have as a subject the reconquest of Spain and feature popular dances and poetry. Such performances take place in Zaragoza, Cetina, Ateca, Longares, Ambel and Tauste.
