Held in the wonderful Botanic Gardens of Cordoba, the 13th International Sephardi music festival in Spain showcases the different traditions of Sephardic culture. This year’s programme of events includes concerts by Spanish and international artists, seminars, wine-tasting, cooking demonstrations, dance workshops, a children’s storytime and a documentary screening.
We think everybody should see the passion and drama of the Pamplona bullrunning festival at least once in their lives – from the safety of the sidelines or up in a balcony with views of the action. The world-famous San Fermin festival held from 6-14 July is a busy one and it’s never too early to book your place.
If you’ve never been to the very popular Cordoba Patio Festival in Andalusia why not visit this year? The event takes place every May with fifty or so patios competing for the title of best courtyard. As you can see, each one is prettier than the next – this is one of our favourite Spring festivals

The result was a stunning weekend where we all agreed that the Great Cantabrian Outdoors is heaven made and ideal for visitors of all ages to enjoy. You simply have to go there. It’ll do you good.

Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been planning custom itineraries into Spain since the year 2000, so if you’d like to experience a Spanish Easter, we’d love to help. Let’s start by showing you what happens and where…
