Almeria - fiestas

The marked religious component in the festivities of Almería is reflected both in their origin and their expression, although the latter tends to incorporate more and more secular features. Festivities in honour of patron saints occupy the calendar of festivities in Almería, most of them taking place between May and September. Fireworks, processions, cavalcades, groups of people dressed up for the occasion, folkloric performances, concerts by musical bands and Cante Grande Song Festivals are typical features during the celebrations.
Musically, Almería's folklore has in the Seguidilla musical roots that go back to before the 11th century, and the Petenera, a dance from the Alpujarra, originated at the end of that century. The more modern Fandango is from the 18th century.
