The city experiences their biggest music festivals, which draws in tourists from all over Spain. There are eminent personalities who are honoured as guests and the city gets quite hyped up during this time. If you plan to get your holiday tour between two of these months, try to adjust the dates with this event.

Patron Saint’s Day in Santa Eulalia (February 11th – 13th):

This event pays homage to the Patron saint of the region and locals try their best to put up the festive environment. This saint was a believer of Christ and had gone against Romans who forced people to believe in Roman Gods. Eulalia had escaped from the law of court and professed herself as a Christian. Legends have said that a white dove was seen coming out from her mouth and fly around, and this is followed by a snowfall. This incident marked her sainthood and people started following her. The city brightens up with parades, craft fairs, exhibitions, musical performances, etc. It finally ends with traditional feasting and gatherings!
