17th March 2018

New Edit



With St Patricks day on 17th, which is well celebrated here, many folk will be parading in their traditional green outfits! The Irish bars will be full to overflowing. 

Fathers day in Spain is celebrated on March 19th, again the Spanish restaurants will be full of locals celebrating. 

Other than that a fairly quiet week building up to “Semana Santa” the biggest celebration of the year with elaborate Easter processions in all the towns starting the following weekend. More on all of that next week.

Enjoy this fantastic sunshine.
