Girona Traditions

The civilization of a people is also defined by its festivals: they pertain to the culture of leisure, entertainment, and participation. They are often a part of tradition and history. The passage of time has changed many habits and extinguished many customs, but festivals are kept alive and modified to adapt to new circumstances.

Whether age-old or newly instilled, festivals break the working routine, mark milestones in the yearly cycle and serve as a valve for channelling personal and collective expression and expansion. They may take the form of fairs, pilgrimages at local shrines, banquets, marches, contests, dances, musical events, processions, representations, shows, or popular celebrations. They may be rural, pastoral, maritime, urban, commercial, gastronomic, folkloric, religious, civic, or simply for fun. There are all kinds of festivals, in all sorts of settings and to suit every fancy.
